The Skinner Cemetery is located in the village of Youngstown, Niagara Count, New York, on the north side of Swain Street, a one-block, dead-end roadway off Lower River Road (Rt. 18F).

There is only one monument with inscriptions and there are six gravestones around it. The small plot was originally on the family farm, but is now owned by the village of Youngstown.

This is a complete transcription, which I compiled on Sep 11, 2007 after visiting the cemetery. I have photos of the headstones.

    What makes us Different?

    Single-sourced, not crowd-sourced

    Each transcription we publish comes from a single-source, be it the cemetery office, government office, church office, archived document, a tombstone transcriber. Other websites already do an excellent job of crowd-sourcing a single cemetery together. But genealogists also need to see the original records from a single source. That's what we offer.
