Chateaugay Cemetery, Orwell, Oswego Co., NY  
Chateaugay Cemetery, Rte. 2, 
Town of Orwell
Oswego Co., NY

This small neighborhood cemetery is located on the south side of Hwy. 2, between Orwell and
Chateaugay.  It is very well maintained and surrounded by a fence.  There are quite a few
fieldstones indicating other burials here, and we also found three tombstones that were broken and completely illegible.   The tombstones in this cemetery were copied by Kathleen L. Last and Virginia Ackerman on September 9, 2002.

Many thanks to Kathleen L. Last and Virginia Ackerman for their time and hard work taking a reading of these cemeteries and sharing with us.  Its much appreciated

Subject: Carlisle's Buried at Chateaugay Cemetery
Regarding Chateaugay Cemetery in Orwell:
Listed in the Carlisle Family History notes prepared by my late mother, Marian Carlisle Gorman is the following;
Thomas Carlisle and Elizabeth Smith both of the town of Schroepel, NY were married February 16, 1867. They lived at Beeckerville, near Orwell, NY, on lots 26 and 36 at the time of Elizabeth's death. Her daughter, Martha, died the same year and her son, Clifford was very ill with scarlet fever that summer. Elizabeth, Martha, Thomas and Elizabeth's mother, Mary M. Cooley, are all buried in the cemetery at Chateaugay, near Orwell. There are no markers, only field stones. Regarding the name "Carlisle", it was spelled Carlisle, Carlile and Carlyle by different members of the family, probably due to the fact that the family was seperated after the death of the mother and attended different schools.
Clifford lived and was my grandfather, Marian's father and occasionally they would visit the cemetery. Marian's cousin Mary Frances Costello is still alive in Oswego and can also verify this information.
