West Perry, Wyoming County, NY Cemetery Records

Transcribed by Eleanor Kryger
 

 

The West Perry Area was settled in 1810 by Amos OTIS, who built a house on Lot 32.  About 1824 this cemetery was organized as a voluntary association with Dan DICKERSON, Nathaniel OTIS and  Arad  STILWELL as trustees.  An acre of ground was purchased on Lot 32 from Charles P. JEWETT for $ 7.00.  The cemetery was first enclosed with a rail fence.  Burials continue and the grounds are in good condition.  Inscriptions copied in 1948.  Updated with corrections and additions June 9, 1984  by James J. CUTLER.
