Lansingville Cemetery

Part 1

Located on Lansingville Road, Lansing, New York
(Cemetery is located between Jerry Smith Road and Fenner Road, west side)
Town of Lansing, Tompkins County, New York

Cemetery is active.

About 1805, twelve members of the First Presbyterian Church of Milton at King Ferry, Cayuga, New York, were dismissed to form a Presbyterian church in Lansingville, known as the Second Church of Milton. Locally, it was known as the "Teetertown Church". Upon the organization of the town of Lansing, it became known as "The Church of Lansing". The building was raised September 25, 1805. This was the first frame of any size, framed by the square rule in Milton. The house was enclosed and floors laid, and no more was done until 1816. The pulpit was not built until 1826.

Rev. Jabez Chadwick organized and ministered to it and was installed as pastor February 26, 1806. Rev. John Bascom succeeded him in 1818 and remained until his death in 1828, and was buried in the rear of the church, as a lot was reserved for a cemetery. Mr. Chadwick returned and stayed until 1831 when he left to form the church at Five Corners. Rev. Alexander M. Cowan officiated from 1834-36. The First Free Congregational Church of Genoa, at Five Corners, was organized January 1, 1831, as the Congregational Church of Lansing and Genoa, by thirteen male and twenty-five female "seceders" from the Presbyterian Church of Lansingville. On January 11, 1831, Levi Palmer and Caleb Lyon, Jr., were elected deacons. On January 7, 1834, the present name of the church was adopted. On March 9, 1842, the Lansingville Church, from which the original members of this church withdrew because of a preference for the Congregational form of government, dissolved and united with the First Free Congregational Church of Genoa.

The church at Lansingville was sold at public sale for $175.00 and taken down and moved away by S.S. Todd in the summer of 1854. On October 25, 1855 citizens of Lansingville and vicinity were called together by public notice to consider an association to obtain and hold the lot of land formerly occupied by the Presbyterian church for a public cemetery. The Lansingville Cemetery Association was established in 1855.

The first known burial was that of Lucy Baird, daughter of Wm. & Anna Baird, who died December 17, 1814, at the age of 5 years.

His family removed to Croydon, NH where he married Mary "Molly" Leland, daughter of Jacob Leland and Anna Taylor. They were in Cayuga Co., NY by 1810 when Ezra appears in the 1810 Sempronius, Cayuga, NY census, and then settled in Tompkins Co., NY. The Genealogy of Pliny Hall (son of Ezra) gives Ezra's death year as 1861 instead of 1862 as inscribed on his headstone. Calculating his age at death and using 1861 as written in the genealogy of his son, his birth date would match June 20, 1770 as recorded in the Massachusetts Vital Records.
