Connecticut Hill Cemetery

Also known as Snyder Hill Cemetery.
Located on Connecticut Hill, Newfield, Tompkins County, NY

Directions: Connecticut Hill is misleading because there are at least two separate roads with that name. From Trumball Corners Road to Cayutaville Road to Connecticut Hill Road, into Connecticut Hill State Land Wildlife Management area (there is a sign), to the end of a seasonal road, the cemetery is in the trees to the left. At the sign that denotes that area as Wildlife Management, there is also a street sign that reads Boylan Road with an arrow pointing down the road.

Darlene Desmond provided the update for this cemetery by walking the cemetery; Dec. 6th 1998 -
at that time the cemetery had been visited recently,
a few woven wreaths and a red silk rose tied to a tree stump were in the cemetery.
Photo taken 2002 by Cathy Knauff
At the time that the photo was taken in 2002 the cemetery had been vandalized and is in very poor condition.
Someone has been digging up graves. See photo of a grave dug up.
We are thankful to Darlene Desmond who took the time in 1998 to record the headstone inscriptions.
