aka: Baptist Cemetery
Town of Hornby

Hornby, New York
Typed by Annette Campbell

The Whitney Cemetery is located right in Hornby Forks, New York. It has been said by Miss Lillin Adams that on this tract of land was erected the "Hornby Forks Baptist Church".  Miss Adams being the Town Historian. A few years ago this church was removed to the Town of Tuscarora, on the Addison Road out of Addison, New York.  Known also as the back road to Nelson, PA.  The church has been remodeled and is being used today by its members of the Town of Tuscarora.

Copied May 22, 1971 by Mrs Kinner, 555 Water St., Riverside, Corning, New York and Mrs. Whitcomb, 10 Tuxill Ave, Corning, New York.  We were told on this day by some citizens of Hornby Forks, that a Colonel was interred here, but this statement may be incorrect as it is not known if Col. Dickerson was interred here or in Nicarago (sic).  His first wife is interred here.

Two cannons and a monument to Civil War Soldiers of Hornby, New York, who fought or died for their country in the War.  These are erected on the site of the "Old Baptist Church" right in front by the road and cemetery is located up in back on a little knoll.  All stones that remain were copied. So the cemetery is complete as of May 1971.


Erected by the citizens and former citizens of Hornby, Steuben County, NY in loving memory of their fellow townsmen who fought valiantly to preserve the union of the United States of America in the Civil War of 1861-1865. (These were not in the order in which the copiers have placed them).

From George Rogers  3/14/2006: The Jennie A. buried here is the first wife of not Andrew Bray Dickinson but his nephew Alanson Bray. Since their daughter was born in 1865 we can probably assume Jennie's death was birthing related. Andrew Bray and his first wife Hannah Hopkins are buried in Woodlawn, Elmira or at least Hannah is as although he has a stone there his remains may in fact be in Nicaragua.
