The Budlong Cemetery List -- Town of Paris, Oneida County, New York


myshadow

The Budlong Cemetery is very small cemetery in the Town of Paris, Clayville, New York (Oneida County. Located on Reservoir Road. I have lived on this road for approximately 9 years. This small cemetery has always drawn my attention as to whom might be buried there.


Throughout the years the cemetery has deteriorated. The head stones and markers are fallen over or about to soon. The wild berry bushes and weeds have taken over. One needs clippers just to enter. One must also continuously find a safe route to walk to the grave stones. You must check under all of the ground cover as you are walking because the smaller markers are not seen otherwise. Many of the larger grave stones have been sinking or tipping to one side or the other.

The day was sunny and beautiful. I was able to gather a few of the names and will list them below. I will be returning with my husband as an assistant this time so that I can completely list all of the names in this small cemetery.

Return Trip II: I returned with my husband to continue the gathering of information from the grave stones. A day much like the first -- very clear. My husband decided we should start at the back of the cemetary and it is much larger then I had first determined. Condition was the same if not worse then in the front of the cemetery.

  • August 20, 2001 --I know you have heard this before. Today I drove down the road to the cemetery which is in such a state you can't even see the entrance gate. I spent about 2 hours just in the front and sides of the gate to the road. I never knew there could be so many weeds! I shall return during the week to complete the front and then I shall enter the cemetery and continue as far back as I can. Note: The people who drive by and look as I work away must think I am a bit off. I am -- who cares -- I like to pull weeds.

    9 May 2001- I could not have planned it better. What a beautiful day! I walked down to the cemetery with Prince, a wreath, and rake in hand.
    I knew that it was not going to be an easy job as I approached the site. Winter always has its way of showing itself long after it is gone. Twigs, branches, sand, and weeds were in abundance. I worked for an hour just to clear the front a bit and to be able to open the small gate. I really could have spent mega hours just in doing the heavy weeding.

    Prince is a sweetheart tied to the gate and swallowing dust. He shall get an apple when we get home for his patient nature.
    I hung the grapevine and magnolia wreath which I made this morning and that should last the seasons of Spring and Summer. It is placed on one side of the gate. It was very quiet and sunny as I did this. All the stones were standing tall even the ones that were toppled over or hiding amongst the weeds. Remember Mother's Day and Memorial Day. One Civil War Veteran is Van Nort, William H. (ABT. 1837- 1 August 1865) Aged 28 years CO. H. 100 N.Y. Vol.

    Cemetery -- From my Guest Book.(bc) What a beautiful place you created! I am a Budlong descendant and it was so sweet of you to take notice of the cemetery on Reservoir Rd. and give out the names. The Budlong's descendent from Frances Budlong of Warwick, RI. He and his family were killed during the King Philip Wars in 1675 and they had a four year old son named John who was the only to survive. Family history states that all Budlong's descend from the little boy, John. He was supposedly captured by an Indian squaw and traded for pumpkins at Wickford. This child is mentioned in a letter to the Governor of RI by Roger Williams.

    Update: We drove by the Cemetery as we made our way home from an outing. I glanced to see if everything appeared alright. To my surprise upon the iron gate was a lonely flower pot with about 4 stems standing tall -- a gift from the heart -- all is well -- so I said good night.

    From Laurie --Thank you for all of your hard work on the cemetery! Thought you might like to know some of the history of the Budlong's buried near you. I am not a direct descendant of David, however, his father, (Daniel was the brother) to my descendant.

    David Budlong was born May 24, 1763 in Warwick, RI. ( Stephen Budlong born April 3, 1798 died January 8, 1817 was his son.) he was the son of Daniel Budlong and Rebecca Davis. His father, Daniel was the son of John Budlong and Isabel Potter. John was the sole survivor of an Indian Massacre of King Philip's War of 1675. Therefore, all existing Budlongs today are said to have descended from John. Source: Oneida County Gen Web site.

    Budlong Cemetery, Oneida County, Reservoir Road, Clayville, New York September 2007 - If weeds were only flowers...and we could see the brown...then we could go and meet you as we pass your sacred ground.


    Your gates are closed with sand and stones, the wall is tumbling down. The keepers must be sleeping...poison ivy, and thorns abound.


    If there were only flowers

    Where are the funds to keep you clean, where have our "taxes" gone? Perhaps a small amount will find it's way to you, and bless our little town. /jc
