This is a small family cemetery off the Fuller
Road in the town of Steuben. There is an historical
marker on Fuller Road which reads: “Samuel Sizer, first settler on Steuben’s Grant, 1787. Farm
manager for Baron Steuben. His burial place is in the meadow 80 rods north of this marker.
(1932)” This small cemetery contains four tombstones and is surrounded by a fence. It is not
maintained at all; grass and weeds are taller than the tombstones. In the cemetery is another
historical marker which reads: “Burial place of Samuel Sizer, Abigail Sizer, Asa Sizer, and Abigail
Tyler Mitchell, the mother of Abigail Sizer (1932).” The tombstones are badly worn and almost
illegible. The tombstones were copied by Kathleen Last and Virginia Ackerman on August 30, 2000.
