Hillside Cemetery

Andover, Allegany, New York

A - G

This cemetery is situated on a rise of ground at the north end of Main Street in the village of Andover.  Land was acquired about 1807 from the Pultney Estate by early pioneer and surveyor, Thaddeus Baker Sr. of Poutlney, Vermont.  Several graves of this pioneer family are found in the old section on the eastern edge.  The earliest known burial was Seth Baker about 1822 which is not marked.  There are several unidentified graves marked by field stones on a bank adjoining the present confines of the cemetery on the east.  These are brush covered and neglected but presumed to have been the initial beginning of the burying ground.  For many years the cemetery was privately owned and known as the “Lever Cemetery” until 1906 when its name was changed to “Hillside” which became the official name on June 25th, 1911.
