BAPTIST CORNERS CEMETERY

TOWN OF SPENCER, NY

Published by Mary F. Hall and Ida Hallock Fisher in grateful remembrance of our ancestors, especially those pioneers, or later settlers, of Spencer whose probity, intelligence and industry have given us high standards of conduct as well as material blessings.

This contribution to the history of the town is made in commemoration of the centennial of the town's organization, April 1806.

Note: Since the materials in this transcription date at 1906, it is felt that much clearer light can be shed on actuality of headstone information which might have been lost in ensuing years (DAR 1927 recordings – current recordings some 90 years after-the-fact).


Location:
From "History of Tioga, Chemung, Tompkins and Schuyler Counties" - 1879 "Its first church was erected about 1830 and located one mile east of the village (of Spencer)". From the description in the "Cemetery Inscriptions" book by Mary F. Hall, this particular cemetery is at Cowell's Corners "which presently became known as the "Baptist Corners". Cowell's Corners, described as "a hamlet on Catatonk creek" was located about one and one-fourth miles east of Spencer".
