The cemetery at Cullen is named the Crain family Cemetery; located on Hogsback Rd in the Town of Warren.

I am familiar with this cemetery & I do not remember the burial of Mrs Alcena Russell; there is no stone for her. However her maiden name is Waldron as is Elsie Ward's mother.

Jane Foster Allen should read Mary Jane Foster Allen. She is my great grandmother. Her obit is in the obit section of this website.

Abigail Foster's maiden name was Wiltse. William Foster is my great great grandfather; born in Leicestershire England. His parents, William & Ann are buried in Middle Village Cemetery, Springfield. Many Allen & Wiltse relatives are buried at Allen's Lake Cemetery, Springfield, Otsego Co.

There is no stone for Elsie Ward; however Leon is buried there.

There is no stone for James P. Ballard. I am unsure if there is a stone for Fred Petrie; I don't think so. There are other Westcotts buried there; don't remember a stone for Hannah.

In the rear center of this cemetery are buried the Crain family. Their graves are surrounded by wrought iron fencing. If you google Rufus Crain or Wm Baker Crain, etc you wil find their info. They erected the chapel in the hamlet of Cullen - Good Shepard. They gave plots to their neighbors. I have family buried there as late as the 1980's; that's why I hesitate to say Alcena Russell is there.

My Aunt Grace, also buried there, showed me where the unmarked graves of children were located when I was under 10 yrs old.
