City Hill Cemetery - Torrey 

City Hill cemetery, overlooking Seneca Lake, was first used as a burial ground in 1788, when a hollow log was utilized for a coffin in the first burial. It is considered the best maintained rural cemetery in the state. Jonathan Hazard, an early settler, deeded the lands for the burial ground to town of Benton, then in Ontario County  [Penn Yan Democrat Paper - Friday, September 8, 1939]

OUR CITY HILL CEMETERY - About two miles south of Dresden is the above place. It has been a resting place for the dead nearly one hundred years, the first interments being in Colonial times. It is located beautifully, and probably never will be disturbed.

Within the last year a durable, neat iron fence has been placed around the cemetery at a cost of $750.

Followers of Jemima Wilkinson - Among Early Settlers of Yates County -  Brief Sketches of Some of the Family Who Came With the "Friend"

It would seem fitting at this point in the narrative of early Yates County history to refer briefly to some of the more prominent of the followers of Jemima Wilkinson.  

One of the early patriarchs of the Friend's society was Thomas Hathaway, who belonged to the committee of pioneer explorers and was one of the historical three to whom the deed from the state was granted for the land upon which the Friend's settlement was made.

He was a native of New Bedford, Massachusetts, was an Inheritor of wealth and had social connections which led him to the Tory side in the Revolution. He Joined the Friend's society in 1784, and remained a faithful and devoted member while he lived. His son Thomas, then a lad of fifteen, traveled with the Friend on some of her religious journeys, riding by her side on horseback. In a journal, later in possession of his descendants, he recorded proofs of the Friend's industrious study of the Bible, and the Interest she excited on the part of many of the foremost people far and near.

When the Friends resolved to form a community by themselves, Thomas Hathaway parted with all his property at New Bedford, and came to New Jerusalem, bringing his four children: Thomas, Mary, Elizabeth and Gilbert. His wife had died shortly after the close of the war. 

He was an active member of the society and one of its trusted leaders. He commenced the erection of a saw mill in 1796, having previously erected a log house. Before his mill was finished he contracted a fever, and died in 1798, at the age of sixty-six years, and his body was placed in the Friend's vault.

As one of the early pillars of the Friend's society, his name was always held in reverence by the body of people. 

Thomas and Gilbert, his sons, were active young men in the pioneer settlement, and built the first sail boat on Seneca Lake, a vessel in which they transported supplies for the new settlement.

Thomas also built two flat boats to navigate the Mohawk River, and Invented a rack to suspend between two horses, one in advance of the other, to transport merchandise along the Indian trail between Utica and Seneca Lake. By this line much of the goods for the primitive settlement were brought for a few years from Albany.  

Thomas Hathaway, Jr., married Mary Botsford, the daughter of Elnathan Botsford, and resided fifty nine years on his place in Milo, now Torrey, where for a long period he kept the principal public house in all this region. He was a popular public man, a surveyor and an accurate business man.


James Parker - One of the principal spirits engaged in the great enterprise of founding the new community of Friends was James Parker. He was a man of great energy of character, religious excitability and liberal views. He was a native of South Kingston. Rhode Island, was a staunch Whig, and although of a Quaker family, deemed the cause of the Colonies worth fighting for. He became early and enthusiastically identified with the society and the aims of the Universal Friend. He was one of the three in whose names the territory for the settlement was granted, and was also the first Justice of the peace in what is now Yates county.

His separation from the Friends society occurred early in the history of the new settlement, and whatever its cause, was the root of much hostility and ill-feeling between the seceding and adhering portions of that community.  For about twenty years thereafter,  Mr. Parker was identified with the Free Will Baptists, and a popular and influential preacher in that denomination. Upon his revolt from the doctrine of eternal punishment, they withdrew their fellowship from him and in his last years he was a member of the Methodist Church. His death occurred in 1829, at the age of nearly eighty-six, and he was buried in the family burying ground of Otis Barden in Benton.


The Malin Family - Another prominent family in the Friend's colony were the Malin's. They were from Philadelphia and there came here Elijah, Rachel, Margaret, Enoch, Mary, John and Abigail. Of these Rachel and Margaret became members of the Friend's family, where they lived and died devoted to the Friend and faithful personal and doctrinal adherents.

Elijah Malin was a skillful carpenter and built the Friend's house which still stands in Torrey. He also was for some years an inmate of the Friend's family. Enoch, too, was a carpenter and mill builder and erected the first mill in Penn Yan for Lewis Birdsall.   A few descendants of Mary and Elizabeth Maim were the last to remain of that rather remarkable family in Yates County.

The Botsfords -  Three brothers, Elnathan, Jonathan and Abel Botsford, were among the early settlers of the Friend's society. Elnathan was an influential member of the colony. He and his brother Jonathan had a large farm on the "Gore," part of which was later known as the Embree farm. Elnathan's son, Benajah married Deborah Wilkinson, the youngest sister of the Friend, and died in 1801 by falling from a load of hay. Jonathan also was an influential early settler and died in 1829. Abel Botsford had a fine estate next to the Friend's place, in what is now Torrey, where he died in 1817, a man of wealth.

Asahel Stone was from New Milford, Connecticut. He was one who came with the first company of settlers and helped clear the ground for the first crop of wheat, and brought his wife and three children in 1789. He was one of the pillars of the society, was a speaker in the meetings, and highly regarded by his fellow men.

Richard Smith was a native of Groton, Connecticut. He came with the earliest emigration to the new Jerusalem, leaving his family and possessions, to unite his destinies with his religious brethren. It is related that one of his sons, named Avery, when about fourteen years of age suddenly left the homestead in Connecticut and unknown to the family found his way to the home of his father, who on his application for work hired him without  knowing him to be his own son.

Other members of the family came later.  

Benjamin Brown, Sr. came from New London, Connecticut, with the earliest settlers, and with a large family located just eastward of the Friend's house in the original settlement, where he lived and died.  Samuel Barnes was of Puritan descent, and a Connecticut farmer, when he and his family united with the Friend's society. His wife was Abigail Dains, sister of the Dains brothers of the Friend's society.  Their eldest son, Parmelee, came to the new Jerusalem with the settlers of 1789, and Elizur,  the next son, in 1791.  The parents came with the remaining children, Julius, Samuel and Henry, in March 1793, with a sleigh and horses by way of Albany, a journey of sixteen days.  They finally located in the town of Jerusalem, where the father died in 1809.


The Dains Family  - Jonathan. Castle, Jesse, Ephraim and Abigail Dains were a family of Connecticut birth who came to the new Jerusalem with the earliest pioneers and all but Ephraim were at first of the Friend's society.  

Ephraim Dains never joined the society. This was one of the most extensive of the early families and a most important one in the early history of the county. Descendants of this family are numerous.

Elisabeth Luther came from Rhode Island with the first settlers of the new Jerusalem, accompanied by her children, Sheffield, Reuben, Beloved, Elisha, Jonathan, Mary, Bethany and Martha. The original Luther family, except Jonathan, were all members of the Friends society.

Two brothers, Elisha and Eleazer Ingraham, and their cousin, Nathaniel were among the early settlers of the Friend's society. They were an important family and there were many descendants.  

Among the early Friends were two or three families of the name of Guernsey. Daniel Guernsey was an important surveyor. He went west in 1812. Southmit Guernsey settled near Rushville and William Guernsey settled in Potter.

Jedediah Holmes was an important member of the first settlement and a man of some property. His wife was the first that died and hers was the first grave in the City Hill Cemetery. They had no boards of which to make a coffin and were obliged to hollow out a log for that use, first splitting off a slab, which was afterward laid on for a coffin lid.

William Robinson was one of the Friends who came from Pennsylvania.  He was always a single man and lived in the town of Jerusalem, being the first person buried in the Friends burying ground, in 1806.

The next was Mary, wife of Jonathan Dains, Sr. These are only a few of the many families who were early settlers in Yates County. Cleveland's History of Yates County gives in detail, the records not only of these families but of many others. This is a most authentic history of Yates County and he who would follow out these various genealogies is referred to that now very rare book, which contains a wealth of such material.

[another obit...]  DEATH CLAIMS PROMINENT MAN -  Friday           March 4, 1938     by  Dianne Thomas

Ralph T. Norris Dies at Lakeside Home Death claimed one of Yates County's prominent and popular citizens Wednesday evening when Ralph Thomas Norris, 59, passed away at his home in East Lake Road, following an illness of two weeks, which terminated in pneumonia one week ago. Two Rochester specialists, assisted by Dr.  C. E. Doubleday, local physician, rendered every possible aid known to the  profession but their efforts were unavailing and death came at 6:38 p.m., Wednesday, after a day of anxiety and helping against hope of his family and his many friends and acquaintances.

Ralph Norris was born in the Town of Milo near Himrods, Jan. 11, 1879, son of Thomas Rapalee and Sarah Shearman Norris, former a descendant of Eliphalet Norris, a New England merchant, one of the earliest settlers in the Genesee Country, who came from New Hampshire and was the first Norris to settle in Western New York. Norris Landing on Seneca Lake, is named for him.

Ralph Norris loved the farms and lands of his ancestors and continued to operate the large holdings near Himrod,  driving to and from his property each day from his home in Penn Yan. He was identified with many interests. He was a member of Penn Yan board of Education, serving as its vice-president. For several terms he represented the Town of Milo, as supervisor on the county board and was a member of the Republican leaders. He was president of the City Hill Cemetery Association in Torrey, the burying ground which is the oldest one west of Rome, N. Y., and in which, his ancestors are buried. 

He also was president of the Cohocton Co-operative Creamery and a member of Geneva Lodge of Elks and Geneva Rod and Gun Club. He received his preparatory education at Cook Academy and was graduated from Colgate's University in 1903.

As a citizen his judgment often was sought and his sense of fairness and impartiality were recognized by all with whom he dealt and his loyalty as a friend "was outstanding". He was an ardent Republican in political faith and gave untiringly of his time to promoting the interest of his party.  He was a lifelong member of First Presbyterian church. of Penn Yan and seldom if ever, missed Sunday service there.  He was a member of Phi Kappa Phi, of Colgate University. 

He leaves his wife, Mrs. Leah P. Norris one daughter, Sarah E. Norris of Penn Yan and a step daughter, Miss Mary Leah Potter, of Boston, Mass.

Funeral services will be held Saturday afternoon, at the Norris home on the lake, 234East Lake Road.  Rev. Walter A. Hendricks, pastor of First Presbyterian Church of Penn Yan, officiating.  Burial in City Hill Cemetery in Torrey.  The family requests that flowers be omitted.

City Hill cemetery, overlooking Seneca Lake, was first used as a burial ground in 1788, when a hollow log was utilized for a coffin in the first burial.  It is considered the best maintained rural cemetery in the state.  Jonathan Hazard, an early settler,  deeded the land for the burial ground to Town of Benton, then in Ontario County.

Jemima Wilkinson – The ‘Publik Universal Friend’                      By GERALD M. DYKEMAN - Times Penn Yan Bureau  

PENN YAN - The records show that the first settlement in Yates County, nearly 180 years ago, was at City Hill, one mile south of the Keuka Lake Outlet and one mile west of Seneca Lake.

This area had been purchased by James Parker, a follower of Jemima Wilkinson, the "Public Universal Friend".  

He had been authorized to find a site in New York State for her and her followers, it was composed of 1,014 acres, six miles in length and 92 rods wide known as the Garter and later called the Gore.

The first frame house to be built in Yates County was erected on this site for Jemima Wilkinson. And in this same area is the Cemetery, still in existence, called the City Hill Cemetery, where many of her followers are buried.

Parker had picked this particular site because it was near a waterfalls that appeared to make an ideal spot to erect a saw mill and grist mill. Legend has it that Parker, along with four or five men, had camped on the eastern shore of Seneca Lake on their way north to find a suitable place for Jemima Wilkinson.

They could hear the noise of the water as it spilled over the falls in the Keuka Lake Outlet. So they traveled north, around the end of Seneca Lake and proceeded south until they found the site.

It is recorded that Jemima Wilkinson, while in Pennsylvania, had expressed the interest of locating in wilderness of the Genesee country in order to found a "New Jerusalem."

She told her followers that she wanted to find a place where she could "reside in peace with the world." Parker was authorized to find this ideal spot.

It has been said that the house built by her followers was an odd looking structure. It was a small building containing three entrance doors, a gambrel roof with the frame work of the house held together with wooden pins. It was a two-story building with an attic. It was noted that the house contained nine fireplaces all connected to the same chimney.

The first burial in City Hill Cemetery was Elizabeth Holmes who had died on Feb 18, 1789. She was the w/o Jedediah Holmes, a follower of Jemima Wilkinson. It was also said that there were no coffins available so a log was hollowed out with the body sealed over with a slab.

It was also during those first couple of years that more of Jemima Wilkinson's followers died and were buried in City Hill Cemetery;  There were no tombstones at first to mark the graves, but later some markers of common quarry stone were used.    

It is pointed out in S. C. Cleveland's History of  Yates County,  that Jemima Wilkinson did not believe in headstones to mark the graves of those who had departed.   Cleveland said, "Monumental vanity had no place in the life of Jemima Wilkinson. She held that the living owed their best expenditure of love and labor to the living and that the dead could be best remembered in the fragrance of lives consecrated to righteous endeavor."

It is reported that Jemima Wilkinson and her followers only remained in this particular area for approximately four years.  Because of the inability to secure proper title to the land, they moved to the last and final location in the town of Jerusalem. There her followers constructed the house, still in existence, that overlooks the Guyanoga Valley.

Cleveland wrote in his history, "The Friend Society had established themselves in a beautiful situation; they had a good name with the people around them as well as the numerous sympathizers in the communities from which they had emigrated in New England and Pennsylvania. It is no wonder that they indulged in bright anticipations and expected to be the founders of a city. Thus the beautiful cemetery ground was called City Hill."
