Melrose Road or Porter Cemetery

( Town of Owasco, Cayuga County, New York) #157

Located on Melrose Road, just w of intersection of Oakridge Road. The main body of

these records were from published records probably done In the thirties. In 1962

(Skilton)

I took the list to the cemetery to check, but found the stones almost entirely broken up

except for the ones which had been lying on the ground long enough not to attact

attention. A couple of additional names turned up plus a couple of corrections. Mable

Crosby
