This cemetery is located just west of the village of Marne, on the north side of route 585 (Marne Rd.). You will see a wooden cemetery sign in a grassy glen, just east of a drive which leads up to several residences and the cemetery is not visable from the road. The cemetery is up on the hill behind the wooden sign. You will then notice the cemetery stones once you get to the top of a bluff over looking the highway below. This cemetery is very old, there are still readable stones here dating back to 1812. Next to the cemetery near the front, there's evidence of an old foundation which which originally was built by the Methodist society. Older maps & books mention both Bowling Green Cemetery & Channell Cemetery, but after checking old records & asking several of the folks residing in the area, they say they never heard of a Channell Cemetery. This cemetery is described in 1910 as being neglected and it seems that it's care has not improved much. It is still not well kept, evidence of mowing, but no triming and lots of poison ivy everywhere. Many of the stones are in disrepair, either toppled and broken. Some are so weathered that complete transcriptions are near impossible. My readings are preliminary, I read most but not all of them on my first visit here on 24 Oct.2004, have plans to return next summer to do more thorough readings. I have added a few comments from information copied in 1910, but of older data gleaned in 1880's. My use of this older information will be very limited and only to provide additional data where it might otherwise be lost.
