Lower Swale Cemetery
Town of Cameron
AKA Drake Burying Grounds, East Swale Cemetery, Maple Grove Cemetery
Photos submitted by Shelly Florence Glover 2013Sources: Records of former Town of Canisteo Historians Leora Wilson Drake and Virginia Dickey, and present historian George Dickey.
Walked and recorded by Donna Allen in 2005. Updated, researched, photographed in 2015 by Bob and Shelly Florence Glover.

From Bob Glover: Per 1980 “Cemeteries of Steuben County” by Steuben County Historian Charles Oliver, the official name is “Lower Swale Cemetery” and directions are: Off Co. Rte 119. northbound, follow Angel Road to the junction with Swale Road westbound.

From George Dickey:  A person wanting to reach Lower Swale should continue on 119 to the Junction with the Cameron/West Jasper road and continue on this road a short distance to the junction with the Swale road this is a left turn. Then proceed on the Swale road for approximately 1 mile to the cemetery. The cemetery is on the left of the road if coming from Cameron.  Angle road is dangerous for someone not familiar with it.  I'm a native and I won't use it.
