This is the largest burial ground in the townof Starkey, after the Dundee village Hillside cemetery.  It is currently ownedand maintained very well by an active cemetery association. An original transcription of the cemetery was made by Mrs. Grace Perry Ameigh, supplyingreadings of many unmarked graves. Most of the older lots are not associated withan actual owner. In this listing, the names attached to plots and monuments donot bear any necessary connection with their owners. The cemetery is easilyaccessible from the road.

Suicideof Stephen Kimball of Starkey -  StephenKimball, aged eighty-two years, who resided between Rock and Big streams,in the town of Starkey, Yates county, committed suicide by hanging, at about twoo'clock p. m., on Thursday last.

Thedeceased had resided for upwards of fifty years upon the premises on which hedied, and although he had purchased them by contract many years ago and had madea small payment thereon, he had never received a deed to the property, and onlyby the sufferance of a relative was allowed to remain in possession. About ayear ago, however, the title to the premises passed into other hands and a writof ejectment was served upon the old man. During February last,  his wifedied and almost alone in the world, with no place to lay his head in his oldage, he vowed never to leave the place alive.

Theday of his death was the last day the law allowed him to remain on the premises,and after the noonday meal, he requested his niece, MissMargaret Seeley, who has been his housekeeper since the death of hiswife, to summon Major G. W. Ruscoe, who resides inthe neighborhood. Fearing that he contemplated suicide, she lost no time inacquainting Major Ruscoe of the fact, and heanswered the summons as soon as possible.

Hewas, however, too late to prevent the rash act, as be found Mr.Kimball hanging by the neck in the woodhouse. He immediately cut him downand endeavored to resuscitate him, but without success, the old man havingfulfilled his vow and thus only leaving the premises, on which he had toiled forover half a century, with death.

CoronerHarvey, of Dundee, held an inquest over the remains Thursday evening, theburial taking place at Rock Stream Cemetery the Friday following.

MaryEllen Hetfield - Last Friday at the close of a most beautifulwinter's day the Angel of Death spread his wings over the little village of RockStream and bore away the soul of an aged pilgrim, and when the day closed,neighbors and friends called one to another on their phones, saying, "Ella",as they called her, "is dead."

MaryEllenHetfield was born in Rock Stream, on Oct. 28, 1851 in the same room inwhich she died.  She joined the Christian church at an early age and wasalways one of it's faithful members, having been church organist for 25 years.

Shewas the second daughter of Moses and Eleanor WarnerHetfield and she with her sister, Eugenia,lived in the home. She was highly esteemed by the community and the home wasalways open to all. Many a church supper or social was held there.  Severalyears ago, the two sisters took to live with them, a little girl, who has nowgrown to womanhood and is the wife of Harry Jessop,who has been a great comfort to both her and her sister.

The funeral was heldfrom the old home on Sunday at 2 o'clock and was largely attended by neighborsand friends. Rev. Heber O'Hara, Christian ministerat Lakemont, conducted the services.
