Cranson Cemetery

Cranson Cemetery

Town of Lincoln, Madison County

on "Bosworth Road" leading off from "Ox Bow Road", (or "Old Stone Road"), toward Perryville, Sign reads,"Terryyiie 31 rn1e3." Cern.la on right.

Very poor condition. One and one-half miles east of Bridgeport north side, just off road No.31. In plain sight.


The Cranson Family Cemetery is visible from Ingalls Corners Road. The DAR Index says the Cemetery is located on Bosworth Road in the Town of Fenner. Not true. People do visit the cemetery which is in reasonable condition. Because it is on a little knoll behind the house it has been largely undisturbed,

Transcribers Note: The Cranson Cemetery is to be found behind the Benjamin Sharpe Farm, Canastota, NY located on Ingalls Corners Road near the intersection with Nelson Road. The Bosworth Road mentioned below probably comes from the fact that a Bosworth family was located along the road. The cemetery is located in the Town of Lincoln, Madison County, NY
