Eaton Family Cemetery
( Town of Summerhill, NY) #230
This is a family burying ground located off the road, up on a knoll in the middle of a field now used for a pasture. It is only a few yards from the intersection of Atwood Rd. and Rt. 41A, called Como on the map, on the E side of the road. The few stones left in 1962 were mixed in with broken stones in a large pile of field stones thrown up by the farmer.
Copied in 1962 by Crosbys.
This cemetery was copied May 15, 1932 by Edith F. Wheeler and a copy is in Syracuse Geneal. Library. She calls it "Family Plot near Como on Homer Gulf Road". There were more stones at that time, as follows:
