Back to My Personal Index Steuben Co., NY GenWeb Page My ICQ# 15268708


Ina G. Church copied  most of the below around 1953.  Cemetery location Lot 90 - District #6 on a Old Atlas Map of West Union.  - I have made some corrections to the below.   The bodies of the below were most likely moved because of the location and the general bad shape of this cemetery . There are several graves which are marked by fieldstones only - no data known of the unmarked persons buried in this cemetery - as to whether or not they were moved and/or when moved if they ever did get markers.

I visited this cemetery June 23rd, 1990.  It is located up on top of a hill amongt a stand of trees.  I took my 2 children and my mother on this trek.  We walked up through a cow-pasture to get up there.  I might also add that there is poison ivy, a couple old lilac trees and myrtle scattered through-out <My mother had a memorable event with the poison ivy.>.  

This abandoned cemetery is located in the North East corner of West Union township, Steuben Co., NY - near the West Union/Troupsburg township line, adjoining the William Harkenrider farm <north> - off of the Rexville - Troupsburg Rd - which is County Route 117.  

All of the below bodies were moved to what is known as WU1
