I found the Inman Cemetery several years ago and have been unable to find
any previous record of it. It is located on the hill above Cody Corners
in the town of Fenner and the west part of it is on the property of Carl
Schnitzler and the east (and larger) part on the property of Robert Wilkinson.
The cemetery straddles a hedge row along the east side of the Schnitzler's
board-fenced horse pasture several hundred feet south of their house.
The two stones (John and
Jerusha Whipple) (the McEvers Cemetery) which are to be seen in a hedge
row several thousand feet to the west of this cemetery are not from this
The Inman cemetery is situated
about 1000 feet south of Cody Road but a road once led to near the site.
The road shows on historic maps leading to a house occupied by the Inman
family. Two rows of large maple trees are still to be seen along
the old road and a house foundation is located at the end of the western
row. The cemetery is about 400 feet southeast of this house site.
The cemetery is 75 feet
east to west (the western 20 feet being on Schnitzler's property) and 45
feet north to south. It is situated on a slight rise the east end
of which might be artificially built up to make it level. All but
one of the names in this cemetery are related to the Inman family, that
of Freelove Laird who lived in the immediate vicinity being the exception.
Five monuments are lined along the western edge of the cemetery with footstones
marking the location of the individual graves. 18 names are known
from stones but 5 graves are noted by sunken areas and 2 graves (one being
an infant's) are marked by unmarked field stones. There is an excellent
view to the northeast and the site of the Faulkner Cemetery is just out
of sight in that direction. The land to the south and southwest is
of very unique geological form, being an area of glacial outwash and terminal
