Town of Owasco, NY (#159)

Located on Broadway Road about 1/8 mile N of junction of Melrose Road & North Rd, on what was the Marvin farm. One of the Howards was a son-in-law of Marvin. It is good-sized, but completely covered with myrtle and trees. Miss Vera Howard, one of two sisters living in the Skaneateles area, and direct descendants of the Howards buried in this cemetery, explained why there are no more headstones leaving the graveyard looking depleted. Two Howard brothers owned sections of land adjoining and each set a small piece aside, on the line, for their burying ground to be together. Family troubles intervened and feeling ran so high that they had the bodies dug up and transferred to Fort Hill Cemetery in Auburn, NY. Probably the Hunter and Howard headstones, at least, no longer mark any graves, according to Miss Howard. Possibly the other four may still be there.

These records are combined from Skilton and those taken in 1961 by Mable Crosby.
