Hall Cemetery

(Town of Moravia, NY) #141

Located three miles north from Moravia village on east side of Jugg Street, in NW corner of Lot 54, on p. 48 of theNew Century Atlas, Cayuga County, 1904.

“Back from the road several hundred feet, in a maple grove. This evidently was a large, beautiful cemetery, but all stones are down and many broken beyond legibility. Cattle range the grounds and there is evidence of vandalism.”

PLEASE NOTE:	The Quaker Church Cemetery on Jugg Street in Moravia, near the 

		intersection of 38A, and the little Hall Cemetery up the same road

		have several rows of Slate Stone markers 8-10" in height, in the rear 

		of each Cemetery.  These are determined to be very early Quaker graves. 

		The Quakers were not permitted to have inscribed tombstones until 1842, 

		as it was considered to be too worldy, and against their doctrine of 

		plainess. Both cemeteries are close to the location of the 1804 

		Sempronious Friends Meeting House located on Jugg Street earlier 

		known as the "Quaker Church Road".  Hall Cemetery has 35-40 markers, 

		and Quaker Church has over 50."
