Cattaraugus County NY GenWeb Cottage Cemetery, South Dayton Compiled By Myrna J. Moss
Introduction by Myrna Moss
Please forgive me for any errors and remember, it could be worse - THERE COULD BE NO RECORDS AT ALL! You may find errors due to any number of reasons:
I AM human. I tried very hard to read the tombstones but some are in extremely bad shape and unreadable.
Some stones have incorrect information.
I researched many family records and historical records
and even contacted many families. I appreciate all the help from
these sources but know there are still some mistakes (even families
don't always agree on the spelling of names, dates of births and/or
From the time I did a "walk-through" of the cemetery in
1999 (row by row and grave by grave) until I typed these records in
2002, there have been changes. Although I've tried to keep the
records up-to-date, you must remember that I'm not always notified if
someone places a marker where there was none, or added a date where
there was none, or replaced a damaged stone.
Also, I have included names of people that are NOT YET DEAD! If there is a stone with information, I have included it in these records.
There may even be more people buried in Cottage Cemetery than
what I have listed, only because I do not know about them. This is
an OLD cemetery and many of the older stones - if they even existed -
are now completely gone. If you know about any burials here and
find no listing, please contact me. Also, please feel free to
make additions or corrections to these records. I do, however,
ask that you notify me of any changes so I may fix my cemetery
copy. THANK YOU! -- Myrna Moss, 61 Cottage Allegany Road, South Dayton, NY 14138 PH: (716) 532-5287 (verified)
