Whittier Cemetery
Ogden, New York


Whittier Cem.This cemetery is located on the west side of Brower Road about ½ mile north of Whittier Road in the Town of Ogden, New York.

The tombstones in this cemetery have been copied at least twice before. About 1930, Mrs. Herbert Smith of the Irondequoit Chapter (Rochester) of the Daughters of the American Revolution copied the tombstones. In 1966, Mrs. Pearl D. Smith copied the tombstone inscriptions. She also was a member of the Irondequoit Chapter of the D. A. R. At that time, she mentions that the cemetery is very overgrown. During a visit about 1985, the weeds were about waist high. A visit to the cemetery on 7 Aug. 1999 by Richard Halsey was much more productive as the grass and weeds had been trimmed very closely.

This list was made by combining the old lists and then comparing them with the tombstones during the 1999 visit.

A partial tombstone has this saying; "She was pleasant & lovely in life; And in death she was not forgotten." Also there are also these stones with initials that don't appear to fit with any of the inscriptions below: L. W., E. H. B., C. S., E. F. L., M. F. L., R. D., C. H. R., A. M. R.
