Cemetery off Rt. 326, corner of Benham and Chamberlain Rds on the right hand side going west. Deed tells where this is but could find only one broken stone under the tree. The one remaining stone:
Infant of Daniel & Catherine Mason who died July 19, 1838
Copied by Pauline Cukendall, 1963
The following Smith burials are in a small stone walled enclosure on a farm on Lot 53 in Aurelius, directly S of Stony Pitch Rd, back in field. (Skilton says, "Not far from Crossroads Cemetery.") Stoney Pitch Rd., now named Lime Kilm Road - is directly south of Lime Kiln Road on what is now the Harold Hoskins Farm (1972). Trees were planted in 2 rows which would line the driveway to the road (to be extended) thinking it would some day become a larger cemetery.

|Note: These burial records were originally compiled in the early 1960's as part of a project by Local Historians and Members of the Owasco, NY Chapter of the D.A.R. The 1960s countywide cemetery burial inventory was often just a transcription of names & dates found on legible headstones. Thus, the listings may not include any burials after about 1964. There also may be additional burial or record information not cited on this website page because headstones were missing, not legible or records could not be found. Copies of the burial listings found on this website page came from the 1960s Cayuga County NY cemetery burial roster project and were obtained courtesy of the Cayuga County NY Historian's Office.
