Old Gorton Cemetery

Park Avenue

Corning, Steuben Co, NY

cg1a

These are the remaining stones in the cemetery. Copied in the 1950's by the former Miss Elsie Clute of 3 Brown Road, Corning, NY, and Mr. Robert Newkirk, now of NY City. Miss Clute, now deceased was born and lived all her life until she sold and bought on Brown Road, the second house from the cemetery. Miss Clute had told me that she had heard her father and mother speak of how mad they had gotten with the family in the house beside the cemetery. That the cemetery had been over where this family had their garage built and driveway put in over that part. Many stones lost at that time.

Mary Phebe Ann Wilcox is the daughter of Abel Wilcox and Phebe Ann Austin-Wilcox. Mary was born in Laurens, Otsego County, New York. Her mother died at her birth and was buried in Otsego Co. Abel brought his young son, Aurin, and his infant daughter, Mary, to Steuben County (shortly after her birth). Abel Wilcox was the son of Colonel Gershom Wilcox and Elizabeth "Betsey" Stephens. Abel and his father, Gershom, were wheelwrights. Their wheel-smithy was located in the city of Corning. They are buried in the Barnard Cemetery. Abel's sister, Lucy Wilcox, married Frederick Barnard. Frederick Barnard and Gershom Wilcox had a lumber mill in Caton. In my grandmother's paper was a poem written about this unfortunate child (Mary).

I am Gershom's gg-grandaughter, thru his youngest son, Hiram Bostwick Wilcox.  Sonya Bamberg (3/8/02)
