Gass Family Cemetery

Located on Rte 23A near the intersection with Rte 17 in the Town of Jewett. The cemetery is situated about a 1/4 mile back from the road, along the creek, hidden in a clove of trees. The cemetery is in fair condition. Many stones are lying on their backs and a few were covered with grass and dirt. Good likelihood that more stones are buried. Many stones were difficult to read due to weathering.

Postscript: In the "History of the Town of Jewett" by Elwood Hitchcock, former Town Historian, he states that the The Gass Cemetery is the oldest cemetery in the Town. The first known death in the Town was that of Lambert Hawk. The first settler to the Town was William Gass in 1783. William's wife came from Ammon, Scotland. (In fact, there is a Annan, Scotland, near the city of Carlisle in Scotland) Irviny Gass was born in Dumphries, Scotland, which does exist.
