Airdville cemetery

The following cemetery listing is a combination of 3 readings; an early reading from the D.A.R., another partial reading from Mary Slack Maynard, and a third recent reading by Annie Weaver and her son, Nathaniel! Where there were differences in the readings, I placed the discrepancy in italics. Notes in the last column with a white background are Mary's notes, those with the yellow background are from Annie.

More info about the 3 readings:

Many of these stones were transcribed by Mary Slack Maynard during research trips in 1975, 1976 and 1977. The information was transcribed as accurately as possible, but I cannot guarantee that it is error free. Also, some of the information in the My Notes shaded area is verified by census records, vital records, Bible records etc. and some comes from relatives in the area. Do not presume that it is accurate, but use it for further research. - Mary Slack Maynard

The original list provided herein is a partial reading by Mary Maynard for her family research. However, discrepancies (italicized) as well as additional stones (after Mary's listing) have been added from an older transcription performed by the D.A.R. and published in Vol. 265, "Unpublished Miscellaneous General Records of NYS D.A.R.," 1964-65.  Based on what information was left off of this reading compared to the partial reading done by Mary Maynard, it was likely read in 1962 by the D.A.R. - Lisa Slaski

Additional stones added at the bottom of the table from a new reading by Annie Weaver and her son, Nathaniel!  Also a few corrections to both the D.A.R. and Mary's reading were provided.  This reading makes this list complete as of Apr 2000. - Lisa Slaski

There is also a tombstone that says the following:

This land was given by Mrs. Halsey Page in memory of her husband Halsey N. Page and her parents Lewis and Cora Nichols  1989   (She donated more land to expand the cemetery)

The following notes were sent by Florence Braunius (related to the Aird family) and updated in the listing above:

I found a few errors on your listing for Airdville Cemetary.

  • First, Anna Aird was the wife of Pierson Aird (previously listed as the wife of George C. Aird). I grew up next door to Anna and Pierson.
  • Second, Alton A. Aird is the son of Arvin Ford Aird and his wife Nina Kaufmann Aird (previously listed as son of Fred A. Aird & Marian A. [private]). Arvin and Nina are buried in Ferndale Cemetary in Johnstown NY.
  • Charlotte Elizabeth Aird (nee) Norris is buried in Airdville, married to Alton and daughter of Howard and Florence Rutland Norris. (added middle name and parents names to previous listing)
