OLD PRESBYTERIAN BURIAL GROUND

WESTFIELD, NY

An account of the old cemetery,  the land for which was deeded to the church in 1821, may be found in Patterson Library.  According to historians,  the last burial was in 1844, and this cemetery has long ceased to exist.  There are three lists of inscriptions:  one done in 1911,  one in 1947,  and the third not dated but probably between the other two. Included here is a composite of all three lists.  It should be noted that this is far from a primary source and should be used only as a clue for further research.
