Yates County Cemetery Project
Part III: Cemeteries in the town of Torrey


Brown Cemetery: Burials

Brown Cemetery

This is a small family cemetery lot on private property near where the James Brown homestead farm was located. There is now only one stone remaining.

Earlier readings were compared and the information confirmed with general sources. One very detailed reading, detailing the inscriptions, material and carving of the stones, is in the possession of the Yates County Historian. A Windnagle family Bible record in the Oliver House Museum collection was also used.

The remaining stone can be seen from the highway, but it is some distance away in the middle of a field.
