Finton Cemetery: Notes

Finton cemetery

The burying ground of the Finton family was located here on the family farm until most of the burials were removed to Lakeview Cemetery in Penn Yan, where they are today. A few stones apparently were left behind, including the ones listed here.

The plot was surrounded by a stone wall. It is on private property and may not be visited without permission. The compilers did not read this cemetery; the reading herein was corrected and augmented by Wilfred Knapp.
