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.

Joyce and Sylvia,
I believe this cemetery should really be the Bird Cemetery as I will explain perhaps tomorrow night when I have more time. But, basically, Meribah wife of Benjamin Bird has the oldest dated marker and she died in 1833. The four Matthews names are her grandchildren. Gustin and Sutphen came later and at the moment I believe Clarissa Sutphen may have also been a Matthews, but not sure. Unfortunately, as with many cemeteries someone looked over the fence and saw Gustin and that is what it became and it was known as such when I copied markers in 1979.
