Notes by Burl Walker of Springwater, Livingston Co., NY, circa 1965:

Ashley Cemetery is a small, rural cemetery that came into being by donation of a tract of land from the Zenos Ashley farm in the township of Springwater in mid-eighteen hundreds.

Since many of the early settlers of the Springwater Valley are buried in the Ashley Cemetery, it is reasonable to assume that several others are interred in unmarked graves.  This is not a complete list of all those buried in the Ashley Cemetery, and there seems to be no way of ever making such a list.
