(behind 372 King Rd.) "Barber cemetery; Catlin Twp., Chemung Co., N.Y. : Over the other side of the mountain west of Millport. To get to the place, go up the Johnson Hollow rd. to the school house, turn right on a dirt road over 2 miles then nearly a mile through the fields. This cemetery is very old, abandoned years ago and all grown to briers and brush. From 35 to 40 persons are buried there, very few of the graves were ever marked. It was a family plot for the Barbers, but later became a Community burial ground. This information was furnished by Mr. C. Sleeper, who has the family history written out in full, also the same was told by a resident of Milport. Dr. Reuben Barber is buried in this cemetery. There was a marker long ago to his grave. He was a soldier of the Rev. and had 3 enlistments in the Continential Army. He was a guard and stood at the scaffold, when Maj.
