From the "Purchase of 1802" by William H. Tutle
Taken from "Oneida Democrtic Union" of 1931.
John Allen and John Harp died in spring of 1810 and were buried without headstones in the little cemetery on the
Beecher farm located on Lot No. 1.
In a description of Lot No. 16 Tuttle writes, "The first cemetery in this purchase was located in the orchard on
the present Hoyt farm. The cemetery at Clockville was set aside by the state in 1803 for a poor burying ground and was
reserved as such when Col. Chapman bought the land on the southeast corner of lot 11 in 1813. About 1830 an addition
was made to the Clockville cemetery and lots laid out in regular order. Soon after this the cemetry in the Forbes farm was
abandoned. Those who were able had their relatives who lay in the Forbes cemetery moved to Clockville. The stones
have in times past been removed and no trace of the burial place remains. I have been able to find one stone that marked
a grave there. That of Atwell N., son of David and Elsie Gordon, born 183, died July 16, 1827."
Also see the burial on the Hoyt farm above.
Note: Other Lincon settlers were also buried at Perryville, Town of Fenner, Madison County, New York.
