This cemetery has been a "hobby" of mine since childhood. Two years ago my husband, Sam, and I built a new home on my parents farm land adjacent to the cemetery. Feel free to use my E Mail address Shirley (Duckett) Vella , 5185 State Rte. 34, Auburn, New York 13021

I have additional information of a genealogical nature concerning the family buried in this cemetery accumulated through corresponding with relatives of these people. I'm also the unofficial "tour guide" when relatives have stopped by over the years looking for the cemetery. As you can see I added a couple of names. I also corrected the spelling of Hellen Wheaton - this is how it is spelled on her stone. I listed Chloe Milk under the surname Milk because she was married at the time of her death. Hope this information is helpful, Shirley (Duckett) Vella
