Sherburne East Hill Cemetery

Sherburne East Hill Cemetery

Sherburne Township


This cemetery is located about three miles east of Sherburne village, near the Water Works reservoir. When the Free Will Baptist Church stood near by, many of its members were buried here; it is little used now. The Cemetery Ass'n. keeps it in good condition.

Inscriptions were copied in 1955, starting in the edge of the woods in the far corner, then going towards the highway, continuing around the outside edge, then the interior.

Some of the inscriptions from this cemetery were included in the Chenango County, N. Y., Series of "Cemetery, Church, and Town Records" compiled by the Daughters of the American Revolution several years ago. The following is a record of the inscription from every stone now standing in this cemetery, and provides many additions and corrections to the older record.
