Crandell - Turner Cemetery
Town of Veteran , Chemung County, New York 
Copied from DAR records by Ralph Weller ,formatted for the web by Joyce M. Tice 
On the Ridge Road, between Horseheads and Odessa, N.Y. Grown to trees, brush and briers, stones broken. All stones listed that could be read.
August 2005 - Hi Joyce, is there a way you can change or hyphenate the name of this cemetery to CRANDELL - TURNER?  It was originally known as the Crandell cemetery.  When the Crandells sold the land around the cemetery to the Turner family it was then known as the Turner cemetery.  The majority of the folks buried in there are actually more related to the Crandells than the Turners.  Dave Crandell, one of the descendents is having a sign made to alert people to this as well.  He also has many old maps and a family history for the Town of Veteran.  Thanks for considering this.  Tim Rodabaugh

Hi Joyce, we will soon be having a change in our cemetery listings for the Town of Veteran.  The Turner and Crandell cemeteries on the Ridge Road will be two separate listings.  The Crandell side will be identified as follows:  “Crandell Farm Cemetery 1835-1901” and the Turner side will be “Turner Cemetery”.  We will simply move the existing sign to the front of the Turner side.  This is changing due to recent developments involving land title searches and the gas company.  One of the descendants of the original Crandell farm is placing a sign at the front of the cemetery.  The Crandell family also still owns this cemetery.  The Turner cemetery is actually on land currently owned by the neighbors, Mr. & Mrs. Shaw.  Once everything is finalized I will send you the updated listings for each.  I have to insure that I have the correct stones assigned to the appropriate cemetery.  Thanks, Tim [Oct. 2007]

Joyce, here is the up to date listing for the “Crandell Farm Cemetery 1835-1901”.  This and the Turner cemetery on the Ridge Road will now be listed separately in our records.  Thank you, Tim Rodabaugh
Crandell Farm Cemetery

     This cemetery is located on the West side of the Ridge Road, Town of Veteran, Chemung Co., N. Y., approximately .25 miles

North of the Smith Road.  There a couple of stones broken & the perimeter fence is in poor condition.  The ornate fence was made by a local blacksmith, Larkin Packard Stiles, who was a son in law of Amos Crandell.  Larkin was married to their daughter Mary A. Crandell.

Supporting information supplied by Dave Crandell, a Crandell descendant, who lives in Painted Post, N. Y.  On July 27, 2005 a memorial stone was placed at the cemetery by the Crandell brothers in memory of their ancestor Eber Crandell.  On October 20, 2007 a sign marking the cemetery was placed at the cemetery.  There are several marker stones & what appear to be unmarked graves/depressions.  This cemetery was cleaned up & all available stones re-read by the Town Historians, Tim Rodabaugh & Rick Smith on 29 May & 30 May 2005.
