Other comments:

 The Scudder Cemetery is a small burial ground located on Lower Maple Avenue (New York State Highway #427) in the town of Ashland, Chemung County, New York.  It must not be confused with the small Miller Cemetery which is also located on the same highway.  Situated almost on the shoulder of the road, it is cared for by the Town of Ashland and measures about 42’ x 45’ in size.  There are no weeds or brush, the grass is mowed regularly, and the tombstones are erect and intact.  The plot is surrounded by a white rail wooden fence. There undoubtedly are more graves than the number of tombstones indicate.
 The following record was made on July 18, by Joseph C. and Doris Boyd.  Data in brackets does not appear on the tombstones, but has been added for interest.  In some cases such as a wife, son and/or daughter, the surname has been added for clarity
