Joyce's Search Tip - December 2007 -
Do You Know that you can search just the 860 pages of Chemung County Cemetery Records on the site by using the Cemeteries -Chemung button in the Partitioned search engine at the bottom of the Current What's New Page? If you use that partition follow these steps to search just one cemetery
1. Choose Cemeteries - Chemung
2. Enter part of the cemetery name [ie Comfort or Carr] AND a surname.
3. Choose the Find ALL Words option. Then it will find just the pages with that surname in the one cemetery you indicated. 

Name of Cemetery:   Frost -  Owen Farm Cemetery, Drake Cemetery, Frost-Owen Cemetery
Read By:
Date Read:  1989
Typed By:  Janet Loftus
Location: Located on 17-C at Chemung, West of the Race Track on the North Side of the Road
Other comments: The list that I received was labeled Frost - Owen Farm. Since a cemetery by that name was not on my list, and Drake is a name in the cemetery, I am making the assumption that this is also called the Drake Cemetery. If anyone has information to the contrary, please inform me - Joyce M. Tice

This is directly on Route 17C across from the convenience store. While it is strategically located it is difficult to find. When I asked at the convenience store for the location of any old cemeteries in the area a couple of years ago, even they did not tell me about the one across the street. And when a friend gave me directions and said, "You can't miss it." I responded that I obviously had been missing it for months even when I was looking for it. Once you've seen it, it is obvious, but is easily overlooked. It is on the east side of the road and is mowed. JMT
