HARPUR Cemetery, Colesville


HARPUR CEMETERY is located in the Town of Colesville, Broome Co. NY. It is on the left side of Route 79, going from Harpursville to Windsor. In days gone by it was called the Bevier Cemetery, probably because Mr. W. Bevier owned the property in the middle 1800's. However, this resting place goes back much farther in time, with one headstone being discovered in the underbrush that has a date of Jan. 11, 1798. Before being called the Bevier Cemetery, it was simply Bryant's Grove.
