Penn Yan Democrat                  Friday              April 8, 1921       by Dianne Thomas


ABANDONED CEMETERIES - At frequent intervals' during the last few years the Democrat has called attention to the shameful manner in which old burying grounds are treated. These hallowed spots contain all that is left of the mortal remains of many pioneers and their early descendants.

Some of them blazed a trail through the wilderness and prepared the way for the generations that came after them, and it is certainly an act of ingratitude to permit such, conditions to exist.

Two weeks ago we called attention to two old cemeteries in this county - one in Benton and one in Milo. The article has attracted considerable attention. We mentioned that Andrew Nissen found bones on a grave in the Benton cemetery that had been dug up and brought to the surface by woodchucks. The article has been copied in a number of papers in other places.

Early this week Mr. Nissen received a letter from a member of the "Daughters of the American Revolution," in Rochester, in which she referred to the condition he reported, and enclosed the following:

XXVI -  "For thee who, unmindful of the un-honored dead Dost in these lines their artless tale relate; If chance, by lonely contemplation led Some kindred spirit shall enquire thy fate. "

GOD'S ACRES - A little south of Pittsford, on the Nathan K. Welch farm, "Johnnie Cake Road," so named for the quality of the soil, is a small cemetery, the earliest stone dated 1810, overgrown with weeds and brush, containing the remains of some of our earliest settlers, whose beautiful old headstones are in great need of attention. It may be well to insert the act to amend the town law relative to the care of abandoned cemeteries, that became a law April 17, 1901. 

Sec. 195. -  Burial grounds when to belong to town, "The title to every lot or piece of land which shall have been used by the inhabitants of any town in this state as a cemetery or burial ground for the space of 14 years, shall be deemed to be vested in such town and shall be subject in the same manner as other corporate property of the towns, to the government and direction of the electors in town meetings. In any town in which trustees of burial grounds have not been chosen as provided in sections 193 and 191 of this chapter (386) the town board may adopt regulations for the proper care of any such cemetery and burial ground and regulating the burial of the dead therein. 

If a cemetery or burial ground in any town is not used for burial purposes it shall be the duty of the Commissioner of Highways of such town to remove the grass and weeds there from at least once in each year, and to erect and maintain suitable fences around such cemetery or burial ground at a cost not to exceed $50.00 unless authorized by a majority vote of the town. The cost and expense of such commissioner shall be a town charge and shall be paid in the same manner as other town charges. 

These old cemeteries should be cleaned up and properly cared for. Most of them are small and the outlay necessary to do this would cost the taxpayers only the price of a few gallons of gas. It ought not be necessary to invoke the law in this matter, but we hope these lines will come to the attention of someone in every town who will see to it that the old cemeteries in their respective towns are made respectable.

There is something lacking in a community that is willing to spend large sums dressing up for the edification of tourists "passing through'", but never a penny for the upkeep of the graves of the early settlers.

Has Will 118 Years Old -  G. Harold Spencer, of Benton, has in his possession a will which was drawn and executed on Sept. 19, 1816, one hundred and eighteen years ago.   The maker of the will was Elijah Kelsey, and the witnesses were Reuben Gage, Truman and Elijah Spencer.

Elijah Spencer was the great grandfather of G. Harold Spencer, and the grandfather of Frank Spencer. He was a brother of Truman Spencer, who was the third pioneer settler in Benton.  Truman came to Benton in the year 1758 and made a purchase of Levy Benton of land in lot No. 8 in the locality afterward known as Spencer's Corners.  In 1789, James Pattison and his wife and their daughter, Lois Pattison Spencer, wife of Truman, the pioneer, came and occupied the cabin which Truman had built.  David Spencer was the first child born to Truman and Lois Spencer and his birth on Sept. 8, 1790 was the first event of its kind in the town.  The other children born to them were Nancy, David P., Laura, Olive and James. By reason of his services in the militia organization, Truman became known as captain. He was one of the presidential electors in 1832, as the records of the civil list show. He died in 1840. From those sturdy, thrifty and intelligent old pioneers there have descended  a number of active, energetic citizens of Yates County.

Elijah Spencer came to Benton two years after Truman. He came with his parents from Hillsdale, Columbia County, where he was born on July 20, 1776.  In those far-off days, the early settlers in this section came by raft up Seneca and Keuka Lakes. The mother and her family and the household goods by raft and the father with his cattle and other livestock would travel laboriously, overland.

The lands here of which Benton was a part was then known as a part of the Phelps and Gorham purchase and  the greater portion of the town as now constituted, comprised township No. 8 of the first range.  This implies that its eastern boundary butted the old Pre-emption line which was the fact, but in making disposition of the lands east of the line and west of the lake, the district of territory between these boundaries was included within Benton.

Originally before Benton as a town was set off, township No. 8, first range together with the land east of it and Milo as was were all a part of the district of Jerusalem, a provisional township of Ontario County, organized  as such for jurisdictional purposes upon and soon after the erection of the mother county.

Reuben Gage, one of the witnesses of the old will, was the son of Moses Gage, who, with his wife Sarah, and his children, came from Dutchess County, and settled in Benton in 1801.  Reuben Gage married Azuba Hoyt.

The old will reads in part: 'In the name of God, Amen. "I, Elijah Kelsey, of the town of Benton in the County of Ontario and State of New York, being indisposed in body but of perfect mind, memory, and understanding and being possessed of a portion of the good things of this life that the same be be disposed of the same in manner and form following:

1st.  It is my will that my dear beloved wife, Catherine, together with Jillet, my son, have, possess and enjoy all my real estate as also all my personal estate and that jointly my wife fully to enjoy and command the same during her natural life then to be the sole property of my son,  Jillett, except the household furniture which it is my will should be equally divided between my wife, daughter, Abila, and my daughter, Sally, at the death of their mother.

To his son, Eli, he left a certain bond of one hundred and fifty dollars, which "he gave me for a certain piece of land also twenty-five dollars out of my estate when they shall judge proper and best, but not until after  they pay to my son, Simion his legacy, this being his equal part of my estate."

To his daughter, Sally, "my three year old colt, when the same is three years old," and this together with what "she already had had" was considered by the testator as being her equal share of his estate.

To his son, Henry Elijah Kelsey,  left a certain bond of two hundred dollars which "he gave me for a certain piece of land also twenty dollars out of my estate." To his son, Simeon, he left sixty dollars and this with what he already had was considered his share of the estate.

A codicil, added seemingly in later years, gave to Elijah's grandchildren, David, William, and Harvey Pettibone, fifty dollars each to be paid to them, and also to his son, Samuel, one-half the land given to his mother, the same to be given after her decease. The writing in the codicil was the handwriting of an old, feeble and infirm man and was in sharp contrast into the fine penmanship of the original will. Apparently it had been added many years later and was never signed or witnesses.

Among the old papers with the will was one telling of an experience which Martin and Elijah Spencer underwent when the were small boys.

The paper reads: Elijah Spencer was born July 20, 1776, in Hillsdale, Columbia County, in this state and removed with his parent to the Genesee county in 1792 and settled on what is known as the Phelps farm in the town of Benton.  His older brother, Truman Spencer, preceded him about two years, who together with a few others, formed the first white settlement in Yates county. It was at that time, a wild and rugged country and needed sturdy men and women to brave the dangers and privations which surrounded them on every hand.  An incident in the early days of Mr. Spencer, will go to prove this. He, with his brother, Martin Spencer, two years his senior, went into the woods one afternoon, late in October in search of the cows. Failing to find them they lost their way and after wandering around until nearly dark, they came to the head waters of what is known as Roy's Brook. (Roy's Brook has its source in what is now the Ed Quenan farm in Torrey and runs south crossing under the Nigger Hill, near Dresden. It empties into the Seneca Lake near Hopeton.

They determined to follow it knowing that it would lead them to the outlet of Crooked Lake and thence to Seneca Lake where "they knew an old hermit by the name of Fish had built a cabin where they hoped to spend the night and return next day to their homes. They arrived there after dark and much to "their chagrin found it deserted and the chill winds whistling through the open crevices between the logs. They gathered together some leaves and attempted to spend the night. They very soon became chilled and began to cast about for the next best thing to do. They knew that an Indian "path led from Kashong directly past their home to Crooked Lake and at once they determined it as the most feasible plan to reach home, and set out along the shore of the lake for Kashong and thence by the Indian path for home which they reached at early dawn, much to the joy of their distressed parents who had spoilt a sleepless night watching and waiting and fearing lest some dire calamity had befallen them. But few in these days can realize the emotions that welled up in the bosoms of those youthful wanderers as they journeyed on through that long dark night, lighted only by the glimmering star's and surrounded as they were on all sides by a dense and unbroken forest."

'Thanks to Penn Yan woman - 'Forgotten' Cemeteries Will Be Remembered - [a couple of pics of the cemetery]   By MARTHA GIBBS

PENN YAN - Shaking her head in dismay, Catharine Spencer picks off the burdocks that attached themselves in clusters to her slacks.

If it's not burdocks, it's vines, stick-tights, fox or woodchuck holes that must be dodged, she said with a chuckle.  You have to expect these problems when you're searching for information on gravestones in old cemeteries, she explained.

Mrs. Spencer, who lives at 311 Liberty St., has been recording genealogical information from gravestones for the past two years. So far, and she's not ready to stop yet, she has filled six three-ring notebooks with 1,500 typed pages of persons' names, dates of birth and death - just from 100 Yates County cemeteries.

Two more notebooks contain 1,100 pages of similar information from cemeteries In Ontario, Steuben and Schuyler counties, while yet another has 400 pages from cemeteries around the state. The notebooks are Indexed by cemetery and family, a culmination of hours and hours of writing and miles of travel.

Mrs. Spencer's Interest in recording the information found in cemeteries for genealogical enthusiasts, began on a smaller scale several years ago when she and a friend, Annette McCullough, began a search for their own ancestors. Then the Yates County Genealogical and Historical Society, Inc., became aware of the two women's work and expressed an interest in having a copy for its files.

So, two years ago this spring, the women began in earnest, along with Mrs. McCullough's dog, Ricky, they would spend late afternoons and evenings traipsing back roads in search of little known cemeteries. Ricky, who soon was dubbed "the cemetery dog",  was a great help on the ventures, often finding cemeteries before the women.

Mrs. Spencer recalls how on their search for the Rose-Beddoe Cemetery, an early burial ground in Keuka Lake State Park, she took Ricky up a steep path to the woods and said, "find the cemetery."  She soon heard a barking in the distance and there was Ricky standing in front of a stone wall that surrounded the cemetery.

Other times, while riding in the car, Ricky would start barking as they approached a cemetery.

Mrs. Spencer now is without Ricky's help since Mrs. McCullough moved to Bay City, Texas, in June. Since then, she has been busy compiling, indexing and typing the information they gathered in their travels about the county.

Mrs. Spencer said they looked for the old, "forgotten" cemeteries since the information about who is buried in cemeteries like, Lakeview in Penn Yan and Hillside,  in Dundee is readily available.

Before starting out on a search, the women looked in the Yates County Atlas and read old newspaper clippings that noted where cemeteries were.

Cemetery sleuthing is not for the non-hardy nor the fastidious, since old  cemeteries often are inaccessible without a long trek through fields, weeds or mud and they're often covered with burdocks, prickers, vines (Including poison ivy), fallen trees and animal holes.

Mrs. Spencer, a small, wiry woman with unlimited enthusiasm, finds the condition of some of the cemeteries distressing. She is especially upset by the disrepair of the Hazen Cemetery on the southern end of Preemption Road, just outside of Penn Yan.  A cursory glance shows many of the gravestones there date back to the early 1800s. 

Here, she had to pick her way through the burdocks while avoiding the young, spiny locusts to find her ancestors' stones. Coming back toward the road, she paused by a stone mostly obliterated by a pile of brush dumped near the front of the cemetery.  She sadly noted the brush is obscuring more stones and lamented the disrepair of the cemetery since it is easily accessible and so near the village.

Later, back in her apartment, Mrs. Spencer described some of the incidents she has experienced on her searches.

Amidst albums of photos taken in the cemeteries visited, she told tales of searches done in intense heat, snow and rain. She recalled how they finished recording the information from Bellona Cemetery, in the dark with the help of the headlights from one of the caretaker's cars.


Eyes twinkling, Mrs. Spencer also recalled a trek to the Benton Rural Cemetery ,where she and Mrs. McCullough were rained off three times in one day before they finished plotting down the information.

"I like to do it," she said, adding sometimes she and Mrs. McCullough would become so engrossed in their work that they would forget to eat.

"The work is really fascinating. You wonder what the people did and how they lived," she mused, noting she has read Stafford Cleveland's "History of Yates County" from cover to cover more than once.

Although the bulk of the county's small cemeteries are now surveyed, Mrs. Spencer said she still plans to go to Gorham to seek information about her ancestors and do others "just for fun."   [a picture of her, surveying the study of a headstone, in the cemetery]
