|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
This cemetery was on Main Street east of the present day Methodist Church. It was Presbyterian, though all sects used it. In 1847, the Presbyterian Congregation purchased a tract of land comprising part of the present day Grove Cemetery which it maintained until 1854, when a non-sectarian cemetery association was formed. The moving of the gravestones from the Trumansburg 'Old' cemetery was not carried out very carefully or thoroughly and the process continued over a number of years. Many of the original stones may be found in the northern section of Grove Cemetery in a little visited area.
