Old Presbyterian Pioneer Cemetery

Known today as the
"Old Pioneer Cemetery"
East Main Street
In the village of Dryden, Tompkins Co., NY
Location: Directly behind the Presbyterian Church.
Going toward Virgil on Rt. 392, the Cemetery is on the left,
just before the Town Hall

Establishment 1830
Land given to Presbyterian Church
by Abram Griswold in 1830
Note: Abram Griswold born July 10, 1784 died Dec. 27, 1862
He married Margaret Givens born Dec. 2, 1788 died June 22, 1842

In the 1920's many headstones that were in this cemetery were removed and placed in
Green Hills Cemetery, Dryden, NY.  Every attempt has been made to note those headstones.
Other headstones have been placed in this cemetery that were located on different burial grounds,
some of the burials here were removed to other cemeteries.  It is unknown which bodies were moved other than the
headstones we find in Green Hills Cemetery lying flat on the ground.

Notes are from my own research.
Please use as a guide only!
