        This list gives the data that I have found on tombstones in central New York cemeteries.  Notes from archival and documentary sources are now to be found on a separate page.  All of this work is derived from the research I have done in an attempt to identify the several Cortland County carvers.

        The data on this page is derived almost exclusively from the stones themselves.  Many thousands of stones have been examined, with a focus on locally made shale stones, but very few will have any signature to show the maker.  While most stones are not signed, their design elements can give us clues that help identify the works of particular artisans.  Although I am fairly certain that I can identify the artisans of many of these unsigned stones, I have not made that foolish attempt as of yet!  Someday I hope to more fully study the composition of the design, and method of carving or lettering form, which are as unique as any artist's personal style, and learn who these modest artisans were.

        I have not had the chance to add my notes on scores more stones, and several other carvers, such as the Terpennings of Virgil, Cortland County and later Dryden, Tompkins Co.; the Crandalls of Norwich, Chenango County; David Manrose of Freetown, Cortland Co.; or Hooper of Greene, Chenango Co..  My own home town of Cazenovia had a string of carvers between the as early as 1810 and extending strongly into the 1930s but I have had little time to research them.  Dozens of early carvers never signed their stones and thus remain anonymous - this is another project altogether!
        To date, this list includes data collected at scattered cemeteries in Broome, Cayuga, Chemung, Chenango, Cortland, Delaware, Genesee, Livingston, Madison, Monroe, Niagara, Oneida, Onondaga, Ontario, Orange, Orleans, Otsego, Schoharie, Schuyler, Steuben, Sullivan, Tioga, Tompkins, and Yates counties of Upstate New York.  Some scant data from cemeteries outside of central New York has also been added.  Not all cemeteries of these counties have been examined and some data was hastily gathered and the cemeteries will need to be more fully examined at some future date.
        I apologize for any information that is lacking.  I did not begin this project with the intent of compiling lists of carvers who signed their stones  This data set evolved out of the larger data base on central New York stones.  If any one has any additional information on signed stones in the central New York region, and before the Civil War, I would very much appreciate being able to add the information to this list - please e-mail me!
