Barber Corners Quaker Cemetery

(Town of Ledyard, NY)  #86

Mr. Otis records say: " Located on Levanna Rd. a short distance E. of Barbers Corners. this known locally as the " Quaker Cemetery. "The land is said to have been donated by a man by the name of Charles Gifford. There is a substantial iron fence with a gate on the side next to the road. It is in good condition and has been recently painted. A very old boardfence is on the east side. Wire fences are on the south and west sides. The area is around 1/2 acre. The cemetery is shaded by several large maples , Scotch Pine , White Cedar and Norway Spruce trees. The size of these trees indicate they are over 100 yrs. old. A large Horse-Chestnut tree is nearly dead. The Cemetery has been mowed annually. "

Also in Syracuse Geneal Lib. . Vol. L.N. 48 C31 Bc , another copy of this done by Mrs. Coulson. She says " These are part of 29 stones ( some Giffords buried there without stones ). Cemetery is 1 mi. W of Scipioville on road between between Scipioville and Levanna."
