These records were copied by Mr Frank Place and Mr Elwyn Jackson on 27 March 1949 Transcribed by Mrs Donald N Elder 6 Apr 1949. Additions and corrections made by Leslie Peebles - Marathon Town Historian during the 1950's.

Note written by Leslie Peebles:
This burial ground is first right turn from Jennings Creek road, then first right turn again and close by this second turn on a knoll on the left of the road. Note- less than 1 mile southeast of this cemetery is a larger one lying in Broome co, in the edge in the edge of settle of Killawog. Located behind the old potato cellar owned by Mr Hunt on a knoll behind his residence. There are quite likely related families to those in the Tarble or Sessions cemetery, there interred.

Note written by Vicki Hall Titus:
This cemetery currently seems to be entirely in the town of Lisle, in Broome County. The Lisle Historian, Eleanor Ticknor, indicates that Lisle is responsible for the cemetery (mowing, etc.). Follow this link to see a version of this cemetery compiled by a Broome Co. NY researcher.
