WARN-TEN BROECK CEMETERY
Town of Oxford
The Bartles, Warns, Ten Broecks and Tremaines were the first settlers in the South Oxford area after the survey of the Oxford, Brisben and Greene sections of the County were completed in 1790 by Samuel Wheeler, of Schoharie, for Robert Livingston.
John Bartle and his six grown sons and a daughter, most of them married, had bought considerable land, which they lost through trickery. So says Chenango Co. History. A record in the County Clerk's Office in Norwich shows that John Bartle sold in 1798 to Richard Warn 21 Acres, and in 1799 to Robert Warn 37 Acres, and in 1802 100 Acres to Benjamin Hovey. Although this land was bought from the State, the titles were declared defective as they were not filed at Albany. When the survey was finished in 1790, the Commissioners were required to give three months notice of the sale of the land by advertising in the Albany and New York papers. Owing to the brief notices and the imperfect means of communication the land in the Twenty Townships was bought up by jobbers and capitalists. Individuals who had already purchased land but had not had it recorded in Albany were the losers. Many disputes arose and lawyers reaped a rich harvest.
The first settlers were mostly from Connecticut and Massachusetts, attracted by the description of the rich land. Almost at once, it seems, a burying ground was needed, so a small portion of ground was set apart on the Ten Broeck farm in South Oxford for this purpose, and called the Ten Broeck Burying Yard. It is nicely located on a slightly elevated tract of land about seven miles south of Oxford, facing the highway, and only a few minutes walk from the Chenango River and Lake Warn. Part of the land was purchased from Ira Ten Broeck and his wife, Sarah, and some from Samuel Jones and wife, Hannah. On Jan. 28, 1888 still more land was bought from Ira Ten Broeck.
Philip Bartle married Betsy Ten Broeck but they had no children. He built the first school and she taught it.
In 1927, Cora Kathan Sherwood, who always had a great interest in the cemetery, left in her will a substantial legacy, the revenue of which regularly accrues to the benefit of the Cemetery Association.
