Selover Cemetery


This is an old abandoned cemetery situated on the land between Henry Warne and his son, Franklin Warne's farm, Valentine's Corners Road, on Lot 15, town of Niles, Cayuga Co. There is no longer a road leading to it but it is easily accesible by walking along the edge of the field in back of Franklin Warne's house and to the south. It is up on a knoll, three sides looking down on the fields and a gully, while the fourth side is level with the land on the east toward H. Warne. The 1904 Atlas shows the farm to belong to P. M. Selover. I believe it was Peter R. before that. It is really a lovely spot with some nice shade trees, but uncared for and many stones down. There were many plain flat stones stuck in the ground on a slant, indicating I suspect otherwise unmarked graves, probably children. My first copying was in 1961. But in April, 1968, I went back with son, husband and Ray Selover equipped with crowbars, etc., and suceeded in unearthing about twenty additional inscriptions. The following list is my revised one.
