Eddytown Cemetery: Notes

Eddytown cemetery This is the burial ground associated with the earliest settlement in Starkey, named after the original settler, the Irish immigrant William Eddy. The place was called after him until the turn of the 20th century, when it was renamed Lakemont.

The cemetery is easily accessible from the road, though it is abandoned and unmaintained. It is evident from an examination of the ground that there were once a great many more burials than are now marked, and many of the remaining stones are fallen, broken or both.
