Town of Sempronius, NY - Cemetery #187

The following inscriptions were loaned me by Miss Flora Daniells. To them I have added notes by Mr. Leslie Luther.

Searls, also known as Cleveland. Located near center of Lot No. 100, town of Sempronius, Cayuga Co., N.Y., on W side of Atwood Road, near Cortland line, as shown on p. 65, New Century Atlas of Cay. Co., N.Y., 1904.

This cemetery was originally in a field across the road from its present location, from where the markers and monuments were moved to their present location, and also some of the bodies, but not all. There is evidence of many graves with no markers. Copied 1956 by Leslie Luther.

Notes of Young Family

While copying inscriptions in the Searls cemetery, a man who identified himself
as John W. Young, came from a house across the road and stated that he was of the
same family that was buried in that cemetery. He loaned the writer (L. Luther) a family
Bible, printed in 1871, which contained the following records:
