Soper Cemetery

(a.k.a. Soper Swamp Burying Ground)


The Soper Cemetery is located in Pitcher on the South side of the Hakes-Calhoun-Davis Road, West of its intersection with Kostenko Sutton Road . It is a Cemetery of roughly rectangular shape, approximately 68x40 feet. The burial ground was in use between 1825 and 1844.

The data presented for this cemetery is extracted from the booklet Gone But Not Forgotten, by Thomas Lloyd and used with the kind permission of the City of Norwich, which had authorized the work. The survey was published in 1981. Since the survey was that of markers and stones only, Lloyd did not attempt to verify or research the burials. Hence, there are some 4 burials he recorded as "unknown" where the headstone was missing or unreadable. As the Cemetery is an old one there may, of course, be additional unidentified burials.
