Red School District Cemetery
originally the Stewart Cemetery and now referred to as the Owlville Cemetery locally.
Town of Woodhull
GPS Location: N42.02775, W77.44776
Southwestern Corner of the Town of Woodhull - Located at the intersection of Cook Rd. & Owlville Rd.
Originally the cemetery was called the Stewart Cemetery. Obituaries referred to it as such and the first buried here was
Sylvester Stewart. This cemetery was cut from James M. Stewart's land inherited from his father Sylvester. In 1873
the school district was #13, so some time after that Steuben County came up with the name Red School District Cemetery.
A massive clean up of this cemetery has taken place.
