Name of Cemetery:    Savory Cemetery
Read By:  Joseph & Doris Boyd
Date Read:   6/30/75
Typed By:   Cheryl M. Gray
Location:  Village of Chambers, Town of Catlin, Chemung County, NY
Other comments:

The Savory Cemetery is located in the village of Chambers, Town of Catlin, Chemung County, New York. It is situated on the Camp Ground Road, .01 of a mile from the intersection of that highway and New York State Route #414 (Corning – Watkins Glen). It is also .03 of a mile from the Steuben County boundary line.
The site measures about 90 feet in width and 135 feet in depth, is fenced on three sides, and there are 10 very large and old maple and oak trees growing on the boundary lines. The cemetery name board lays against the front, or road, side fence. The grass is mowed and there is no brush, weeds or high grass, but some markers on the west side are standing in thick [growth of] tiger lilies.
There are many more graves than there are tombstones. Half a dozen unmarked fieldstone stubs dot the grounds and there are three graves marked only by wax flowers. Numerous depressions locate “forgotten” resting places. There could be as many as 25 or 30 additional graves of this type.
The following record was made by Joseph and Doris Boyd on June 30, 1975. Data in brackets does not appear on the tombstone, but has been added for interest. Likewise, the surname for wives, sons, and/or daughters has also been added for clarity.
