Description
A nice old cemetery outside the nice old town of Sheffield, opened 1810, with some headstones now unreadable. Rev. John Cornell founded Sheffield in 1809 from New York and became a preacher in 1812. In 1832 the post office opened. The population in 1857 was only 150 but had several businesses and even a surgeon, which would definitely improve your chances of survival, back in the day. Most of the population have been farmers.

Yes it is, and that is one of the reasons I do this, to get the pioneer ones that still can be read before they are too weathered [from design or poor materials, sandstone , wood etc. or moss] and preserve them here. Some are very interesting and sometimes hard to see or find. I can sometimes bring out the letters with some programs but hopefully Hamilton has a master list.

It's kind of sad that some of the stones are impossible to read, considering most people want their lives remembered somehow.
