Jayne Cemetery

(Town of Niles, NY)  #149

This cemetery is on the Jayne “Century Farm,” which is in the hamlet of Kelloggsville, on a mound a short ways in back of the barns. This little family plot, containing only seven stones, has had to be enclosed with a few boards to protect them from the inroads of the grazingcows.

This is recorded by the State Historian as a Century Farm.
