Wylie Cemetery

Town of Coventry

Chenango County, NY

Wylie Cemetery is located on Rt. 235 between Harpursville and Coventry. The unfenced portion is situated in someone’s front yard but I found them to be very friendly and agreeable to let persons wander around looking for deceased ancestors. Coincidentally, some of which are mine. I finished taking the names of the occupants in the fenced in part and was forced to leave the rest for another day due to the rain.

This is a very small cemetery with many badly damaged headstones and I believe that some have been completely lost over the course of time. There are many spaces large enough for graves between the headstones that still stand. Some of the stones are in very good shape and I even found one monument that was made of what appears to be some sort of molded metal in pristine condition.

I recorded the names starting with the row closest to the road and worked from left to right, and front to back. There are a few head and/or footstones that still stand but are completely illegible. Having said all this, here is what I could make out on the remaining stones.
