Located in the Town of Southport, Chemung County, New York at Seeley Creek west of Route 328 and north of Sagetown Road behind the meat plant (former milk plant along railroad). No known markers now exist. There are houses behind the meat plant and the cemetery was where these houses were built. Older residents of the area knew of its existence, but it has long since disappeared. John Jones, Sr., was requested to plow the area sometime in the 1930?s and while plowing realized he was into a cemetery. The cemetery was not large and evidently it had long been neglected. George Hudson who resided on Sagetown Road near there informed me (J. Kelsey Jones) that when he was playing there as a boy he remembers less than a half dozen markers and the markers contained the name BARTHOLOMEW. The Bartholomew family were early settlers there and perhaps this was a Bartholomew family cemetery where interments were made before the establishment of the Webb Mills Cemetery in the late 1840?s where several early members of the Bartholomew family are now buried.
