NORTH SPENCER 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.

Scanned and transcribed by: John Stormont

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 "Historical Gazetteer of Tioga County" - 1888 – by W. B. Gay – "North Spencer, about three and one-half miles north of Spencer, contains one church (Union), one school-house, a store, about twenty dwelling houses and one hundred inhabitants"

From a recent visitor:
North Spencer Cemetery is located exactly 3.0 miles north from the corner of the intersection of Rt 96N (coming from Candor, NY) and Rt 38N (going towards Ithaca). It's located on the right side of the road; setting back about 1/4 mile behind a large, red barn. If you drive past the North Spencer Christian Academy, you've gone by the entrance. A house sits to the right of the barn/cemetery access road although the entrance is also the driveway into this property. Just continue straight past the barn (to the left side of it) on the path (actually one car width) dirt/grassy road. The cemetery is located just a short distance behind the barn.
