Trumansburg "Old" Cemetery

Town of Ulysses, Tompkins County, NY.
Location: (Was) On Main Street, Trumansburg, NY. This cemetery was removed to Trumansburg Grove Cem.

The cemetery, on Main Street east of the present Methodist Church was Presbyterian though all sects used it.  In 1847, the Presbyterian Congregation purchased a tract of land comprising part of the present Grove Cemetery which it maintained until 1854 when a non-sectarian association was formed. The moving of the gravestones from the Old cemetery was not carried out very carefully or thoroughly and the process continued over a number of years.  Many of the original stones may be found in the northern section of Grove Cemetery in a little visited area.

The area where the headstones were moved to is inactive. This record is as complete as possible at this time from headstone inscriptions. (2002)

These stones are in the woods next to the north end of Grove Cemetery. They came from the old cemetery on Main Street in Trumansburg. It appears to me that they may have only moved the stones in some cases and not all the bodies. The stones for families are not together like they normally would be. I have two ancestors buried there and the stones are not side by side. All stones checked April 1999 by W E Fenton and anything in ( ) is not on the stones and should be checked.
