Gillett Cemetery, Cortland County

Gillett Cemetery

3 Miles NW of Little York, Cortland County, NY, just off of Cold Brook Road

There are about 47 gravestones in the cemetery, excluding small stones containing just initials, designating individuals within family groupings. I was able to read about 43 of the stones with inscriptions other than initials. There were about four that I could not read at all. I only had about an hour to write down the inscriptions. I'm sure that a person with more time would be able to do a better job. Also did not write down any of the poems or verses.

The cemetery was well cared-for, and the grass newly mowed. There was no sign or marker indicating who takes care of it. The man living next door told me that the cemetery is maintained by the Town of Scott.
