Lansingville Cemetery

Part 2

Located on Lansingville Road, Lansing, New York
(Cemetery is located between Jerry Smith Road and Fenner Road, west side)
Town of Lansing, Tompkins County, New York

Cemetery is active.

About 1805, twelve members of the First Presbyterian Church of Milton at King Ferry, Cayuga, New York, were dismissed to form a Presbyterian church in Lansingville, known as the Second Church of Milton. Locally, it was known as the "Teetertown Church". Upon the organization of the town of Lansing, it became known as "The Church of Lansing". The building was raised September 25, 1805. This was the first frame of any size, framed by the square rule in Milton. The house was enclosed and floors laid, and no more was done until 1816. The pulpit was not built until 1826.

Rev. Jabez Chadwick organized and ministered to it and was installed as pastor February 26, 1806. Rev. John Bascom succeeded him in 1818 and remained until his death in 1828, and was buried in the rear of the church, as a lot was reserved for a cemetery. Mr. Chadwick returned and stayed until 1831 when he left to form the church at Five Corners. Rev. Alexander M. Cowan officiated from 1834-36. The First Free Congregational Church of Genoa, at Five Corners, was organized January 1, 1831, as the Congregational Church of Lansing and Genoa, by thirteen male and twenty-five female "seceders" from the Presbyterian Church of Lansingville. On January 11, 1831, Levi Palmer and Caleb Lyon, Jr., were elected deacons. On January 7, 1834, the present name of the church was adopted. On March 9, 1842, the Lansingville Church, from which the original members of this church withdrew because of a preference for the Congregational form of government, dissolved and united with the First Free Congregational Church of Genoa.

The church at Lansingville was sold at public sale for $175.00 and taken down and moved away by S.S. Todd in the summer of 1854. On October 25, 1855 citizens of Lansingville and vicinity were called together by public notice to consider an association to obtain and hold the lot of land formerly occupied by the Presbyterian church for a public cemetery. The Lansingville Cemetery Association was established in 1855.

The first known burial was that of Lucy Baird, daughter of Wm. & Anna Baird, who died December 17, 1814, at the age of 5 years.

Original Settler. The headstones for Samuel and his wife, Anna, were not found in 2009 and there is no information on their burials in the Association records. I am placing Samuel and his wife in this Lot as they were originally listed on the old records as being in the Lot with his son, Hyatt Baker. An original settler of the area deserves better than to be listed at the end of the record simply as "not found in 2009".

An LDS Family Group record has that Samuel Baker of Westchester, Co., NY, was b. April 27, 1767 to Samuel & Mary Ann (Palmer) Baker. Samuel m. March 11, 1788 Mary Ann Hyatt, b. July 7, 1767, and according to this record they had 12 children (with Palmer Baker, b. 1776 listed as a child). Palmer Baker could not have been his son, however, he might have been a brother to Samuel and so I do not list him here:
1. James Hyatt Baker, b. January 13, 1789, Westchester Co., NY, m. Sarah Hamilton, d. May 7, 1841 Halsey Valley, Tioga, NY
2. Samuel Baker, b. September 30, 1790, Westchester Co., NY, m. Hannah White, d. June 12, 1867 (Note: died in Aurelius, Cayuga, NY, buried Fort Hill Cemetery, Auburn, NY. On-line records indicate he died 1/19/1867).
3. Mary Ann Baker, b. April 22, 1794, Lansingville, NY, m. Daniel Bower, d. January 2, 1858
4. Joel Baker, b. March 23, 1796, Lansingville, NY, m. Mary Smith, d. May 16, 1876
5. Daniel Baker, b. April 15, 1797, Lansingville, NY, m. Mary Beardsley, d. May 22, 1863
6. Hyatt Baker, b. June 11, 1799, Lansingville, NY, m. Elizabeth Wright, d. June 21, 1878
7. Albert Baker, b. March 22, 1802, Lansingville, NY, m. Jane Secord, d. December 10, 1886
8. Sarah Baker, b. September 25, 1805, Lansingville, NY, m. Rufus King, d. August 27, 1878
9. Martha Baker, b. March 12, 1807, Lansingville, NY, m. Aren Reynolds
10. Francina Demorest Baker, b. February 20, 1810, m. Abram Bower, d. October 27, 1908, buried Ludlowville Pine Grove Cemetery
11. Stephen Baker, b. June 22, 1815, Lansingville, NY, m. Elizabeth Colemen (perhaps grandson rather than son?)

It is unknown whether all of the children listed above were actually children of Samuel Baker, as another source [below] states that he had 9 children.

Excerpts from the Half-Century Club of Tompkins County by Charles Gay, 1881:
"The Baker family of Lansingville, are descendants of the first settlers of this town [Lansing]. Their ancestors, Samuel Baker and Solomon Hyatt, brothers-in-law, emigrated from Westchester county, and located on lot 54 in 1792. They bought the lot at six shillings per acre of the soldier who received it for services in the Revolution. His discharge was given as title to the land, signed by George Washington in 1783, and is now in the hands of a grandson, S.J. Baker of Newfield. Mr. Baker, at one time, owned about 1,200 acres. He had nine children. A son, Albert, still lives in Lansingville. His brother-in-law, Hyatt, who came in with him, died in Lansingville in 1878."

Samuel Baker was the first supervisor of Milton; Samuel Baker started the first blacksmith shop in Teetertown.

"S.A. Baker of Newfield furnishes the following data: I was born in Lansingville, Tompkins County, June 22, 1815, and excepting 1836, have lived in the county from my birth to the present time. My father (this he told me), Samuel Baker, first came to this county in the summer of 1791. In the spring of 1792, having purchased the lot of 640 acres where Lansingville now stands, he and Samuel Jackson came and commenced a clearing, prepatory to bringing his family from Somerstown, Wetchester County, but did not move until the spring of 1794, when Palmer Baker came with him. While they (Baker and Jackson) were chopping in 1792, supposing they were the only white men in the region, they heard axe blows and trees fall. Starting up, they discovered Captain Benazah (sic) Strong, who had also just arrived."

    BAKER Anna, w/o Samuel Baker died Mar 11, 1832, aged 63y Mary Ann Hyatt, b. April 27, 1767 according to the LDS Family Group Record. Age at death on headstone, if correct, would place her year of birth as about 1769.

Believe this to be the Barnabas Corwin who served in the American Revolution. In the DAR publication, Abstract of Graves of Revolutionary Patriots, Wilcox Cemetery, Locke, NY is credited with the burial of Barnabas Corwin. Wilcox Cemetery is actually located south of Genoa, Cayuga Co., NY on Rt. 34, and he does not appear on the list of burials for that cemetery. A Barnabas Corwin is listed in the Revolutionary War Rolls for New York, McClaughrey's Regiment of Ulster County Militia.

According to the Corwin Genealogy, Barnabas bought land in Cayuga Co., NY in 1795; he was then of New-Windsor, Orange Co., NY. A Barnabas Corwin is found in the 1800 census, Milton, Cayuga Co., NY, 1810 census, Genoa, Cayuga Co., NY and in the 1820 census in Lansing, Tompkins Co., NY. In all 3 census, Francis Drake is listed next to Barnabas. On Aug 29, 1826 Palmer Baker, Josiah Todd and Simeon P. Strong of Lansing were named commissioners for Eleanor Corwin, widow of Barnabas. In part, land bounded on east and south by Francis Drake. In his will he names his wife, Eleanor, his only daughter, Anne, wife of Benjamin C. Reeves, his eldest son, Abraham and his youngest son, William. The executor of his Will was Daniel Corwin.

    STRONG Freeman died Apr 9, 1866, aged 68y

Born abt. 1798, son of Amos & Polly (Goodwin) Strong. Believe that some on-line genealogies have Freeman incorrectly named and placed into the Strong Family as "Truman" born 1798 to Benajah and Jane (Cochrane) Strong. Freeman would have been a grandson, rather than a son, of Benajah & Jane Strong.

Amos Strong b. 1771 married Polly Goodwin, daughter of William & Ruth Goodwin. In a 1825 Tompkins County deed, Amos Strong conveys to his legal heirs, namely: Sally Sellen (born 1794-96) wife of John Sellen; Willis Strong; Freeman Strong, b. abt. 1798; Catherine Davis (born 1800) wife of Peter Davis; she married 2nd Eldad Jackson, burials in Inlet Valley Cemetery in Ithaca; Amos Strong; William Strong, Betsey Brown, wife of Joshua Brown, Hiram Strong, Charles Strong and Anna Maria Strong.

William Goodwin's will dated June 17, 1825, proven January 23, 1826, names in part, William Strong, son of Amos Strong, to whom he left $100.00.

Freeman Strong married Mary (Polly) Denison on Feb. 11, 1819. Mary Denison was born 25 Nov 1800, d. Oct. 24, 1832, buried in Wilcox Cemetery, Genoa, Cayuga Co., NY. She was the daughter of Charles & Sarah (Henderson) Denison. Known sons of Freeman and Mary (Denison) Strong are Jerome B., Charles, and Rufus; a daughter, Lida (Alida?) is mentioned in a few on-line genealogies but nothing further is known about her. 1820, 1830 and 1840 census seem to confirm that Freeman had 3 sons and 1 daughter. In the 1865 New York State Census for Lansing, Freeman Strong indicated that he had been married twice. He was living with his sister, Sally (Strong) Sellen Sweazy.

William B. Hall of Willseyville, Tioga, NY married Elizabeth A. Strong. After they married, they resided for the rest of their lives in King Ferry, Cayuga, NY, possibly in the Goodyear's Corners area. Elizabeth Strong Hall's death certificate gives her father as Freeman Strong and mother as May Bricebridge. May Bricebridge might have been Freeman's second wife and she might have been Elizabeth's mother but Elizabeth consistently stated that she was born in March of 1832, however, she also consistently stated that she was born in Ohio. Freeman's wife, Mary Denison died in October 1832. If dates are correct and if Freeman is the father of Elizabeth A. Strong, then she would be the daughter of Mary Denison. But there are a lot of "ifs". Would appreciate anyone researching this family who might have clues or suggestions, to please contact:
