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).
Evergreen Cemetery Location:
From "History of Tioga, Chemung, Tompkins and Schuyler Counties" - 1879 - "The new cemetery about half a mile west of the old one ( Old Cemetery at Spencer), and adjoining the campgrounds, contains four and a half acres. It was opened in 1864. The grounds are regularly laid out, and much taste is shown in the ornamentation of family lots. A dense hedge of evergreens (spruce), growing at a uniform height of about thirty feet, surrounds the cemetery, adding increased beauty to this little city of the dead."
