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."

Hi, I want to say that the Cayuga Co. genweb site is THE BEST. You guys
have done a great job.
I have a typed copy of the Quaker Church records and I realise that
they have also got the typo on Daniel and Elizabeth Shaver Tidd (Teed
mistakenly on the grave marker) The marker was erected by their
daughters Julia Hitt (wife of Jared Hitt) and Caroline FRITTS ( wife of
Christian Fritts, Jr.) Other children were Rebecca Ann Tidd Powers
Arnold (m.1st Ira Powers; 2nd Corydon Arnold all bur. at Indian Mound);
William M. (m.1st Jane L. Newman; 2nd Eliza leam) Electa (m. Corydon
Arnold both bur. at Indian Mound with Rebecca and Ira); George Day (m.
1st Phebe Holden; 2nd Phebe Rosecrans); and John H. (buried at
I believe that possibly this typo should be changed as there is plenty
of confusion with Daniel& Elizabeth's tombstone being wrongly carved as
Teed's. They are my ggg grandparents. > Rebecca ann m. Ira Powers>
Dwight Powers m. Mary Jane Roderick (Rodrigue)> Charles powers m. Ida
May Rhoads (Shimer)> Anna Matilda Powers m. Walter C. Goff > me ...
**** I forgot to also mention
that Dwight W. Powers 1842-1930 is listed but not his wife Mary J.
1845-1925. There is a double listing for them as they have a large and
small stones. she appears on the typed copy of the records I have but not
on the online records so I guess that is an oversight.
