As the site coordinators are unaware of any existing list for this cemetery, we're starting our own list with a generous contribution from one researcher. Please contribute your relatives' tombstone readings, or info from a published death notice that an individual was interred here, to the site coordinators. Contributions must include your full name and email address so that other researchers can share information with you. Be sure to put "Ames Cemetery" as your subject line so that your email isn't deleted.

6/4/08 Many, many thanks to James Anderson for his contribution of more burials in Ames Cemetery!
My name is James Anderson, and my grandparents are buried in the Ames Cemetery. They used to own the farmhouse on the corner of Shunk Road and Mapletown road in the now defunct Hamlet of Waterville. My grandmother for a while was the town historian.
We had been researching the previous owners of their home and have determined who many of the previous owners where. Using that list, I went to the cemetery to try and see if I could locate any of them. The following list I am sending to you is the selected graves that I found.
Also a link your readers might like to know about is called www.findagrave.com. Various people go out and transcribe cemeteries and place the information online, some with bios and pictures. I have added this list of burials to the cemetery.

3/2/05 Information about her Clark family members who are buried in Ames Cemetery was
graciously contributed by Barbara J. Schefer.
The Clark family has a plot in this cemetery. I was looking for Almira Clark and no paper
information was available. I personally visited the cemetery back in 1991 and found the following head stones:
Edward Clark 1840-1906
Mary Gordon his wife 1843 - 1919
Regina Clark Apr 20, 1872 - Nov. 28, 1878
Hattie Clark March 3, 1874 - Nov 4, 1891
On the back of the large center stone I found my great great grandmother's statistics.
Almira Clark Aug 26, 1802 - Dec. 28, 1890
I knew that Edward was my great grandmother's younger brother. My great grandmother's name was Sophia
Regina Clark Talmadge. She was called Regina or Gene. Gene named her first born (my grandmother) Hattie
May Talmadge. I was surprised to find that Edward's daughters were named Hattie and Regina.
I'm happy to add to those buried in the cemetery in Ames, New York. I'm wondering now if there are
any Morrisons in that cemetery. Lately I have been looking for Almira's relatives, the Morrisons. She moved to Ames after her
husband died for some reason.

members who are buried in Ames Cemetery was graciously contributed
by Liz Curley. Liz will be providing tombstone photos
later in the year.
"I have some Buddle/Gillett ancestors, and visited the Ames Cemetery in April 2002 when I took
digital photographs of the following family tombstones."
On large family plot tombstone:
Henry Buddle, Born Jan. 10, 1827
Olive Jane Gillett, wife of Henry Buddle, born Oct. 11, 1833, died Feb. 14,1906.
Surrounding large stone are smaller stones:
Arthur Buddle 1882-1887
Lorenzo Buddle 1852-1942
Celia Buddle his wife 1852-1925
Cassie Becker 1892-1969
[Cassie (Buddle) Becker was the daughter of Lorenzo & Celia Buddle.]
If you think it would be helpful to other researchers, I'd be happy to provide the tombstone photographs.
