SMITH ROAD CEMETERY
(back of schoolhouse)
TOWN OF CATO, NY


Cemetery off Smith Road, former Merritt Road

This is located beside an abandoned schoolhouse. Mostly all the obelisks
are down and many stones down and half buried. However it is very
accessible, without the usual tangle of bushes and small trees. Copied Dec. 1, 1962
by Don Ruscoe and M. Crosby. In 1965 additional names were given us
by Mrs. Beacham, of Meridian, from records taken years ago when more stones
were readable. M.C.

Subject: Smith Rd Cemetery, Cato, NY corrections

After a recent visit to the cemetery I would like to add the following names that were omitted from the transcription:

Henry White, date of death 10/9/1827
Samuel White, date of death 2/7/1872 at the age of 46
William White, date of death 12/23/1811

Also, correction for Melissa B White, daughter of Henry and Nancy, her age was at least 45.

The four children listed with James Jenkins belong to John Jewell and are listed on the side of his monument:

Delia, daughter of John and Ruth C
Albert L, son of John and Ruth C
William A, son of John and Ruth C
John S, son of John and Fidelia M.

I am looking for information on the White/Jewell families, especially Henry and Nancy.

Thank you.

Alice Warren
