Note: The cemetery is along side the North Rome Road to Ghent Hill. Carol took the photos included here on October 31, 2006. According to Carol, all she could see in this cemetery was one headstone for Jane Reed, and a footstone. We would welcome any other data regarding this cemetery and its burials. Occasionally, silk flowers can be found on the grave stone there.

 

The single known headstone records:

 

Jane

Wife of

Wm. S. Reed

Died Mar. 9, 1954

E. 21y 6m 21d

Note: There is a badly worn verse probably across the bottom of the stone.

 

 

The single footstone records:

  1. J. H.

 

 

There is no evidence of other burials, but there could be. The ground is hallowed in many places. Crepe myrtle is prevalent everywhere.

 

The 1850 Rome, PA. Federal Census reveals that the only Wm. S. Reed in this area was born in New York about 1820. His wife was Mary A. She was born in PA., aged 23 years. They have a daughter Martha, aged 4 years, and a son Moses aged 1 year, both born PA, at this time.

The Orwell Church records, which can be found at the following URL--http://www.rootsweb.com/~srgp/detty/detty281.htm-- record that Mary Ann Reed (wife of Wm. S. Reed) died July 16, 1850, aged 28 years, 20 days and is buried in the Orwell Valley Cemetery. This information suggests that possibly he had a second wife named Jane who is buried here. They can not be the same woman.
