Credit: The major portion of this cemetery was read by Darwina Michael and her granddaughter in the summer of 1997. A 1980 listing by Mr. and Mrs. Robert H. Dows was transcribed in 1986 with the comment "Dobbin Cemetery is located in the Town of Waterloo, Seneca County, New York at the intersection of Pre-Emption and Packwood Roads. Still used, well maintained." This list was originally typewritten. The discrepancies are noted in Darwina's list by [ ]. In some cases these are slightly different readings of letters or are inscriptions that are not on Darwina's list. I did find that Darwina's list had quite a few inscriptions that were not on the earlier reading.

Please let me know if you have any further information on this or any other Seneca Co. cemetery.
