		BURIED ON THE BEECHER FARM 

From the "Purchase of 1802" by William H. Tuttle
Taken from "Oneida Democratic Union" of 1931.

John Allen and John Harp died in spring of 1810 and were
buried without headstones in the little cemetery on the
Beecher farm located on Lot No. 1.


LOT 16:
In a description of Lot No. 16, Tuttle writes,
"The first cemetery in this purchase was located in the
orchard on the present Hoyt farm. The cemetery at Clockville
was set aside by the state in 1803 for a poor burying ground
and was was reserved as such when Col. Chapman bought the
land on the southeast corner of lot 11 in 1813. About 1830
an addition was made to the Clockville cemetery and lots
laid out in regular order. Soon after this the cemetery in
the Forbes farm was abandoned. Those who were able had their
relatives  who lay in the Forbes cemetery moved to Clockville.
The stones have in times past been removed and no trace of the
burial place remains. I have been able to find one stone that
marked a grave there. That of Atwell N., son of David and
Elsie Gordon, born 1824, died July 16, 1827."

Also see the burial on the Hoyt farm above.

Note: Other Lincoln settlers were also buried at
      Perryville, Town of Fenner, Madison County, New York.
