The earliest records of this Church are dated from Great Nine Partners, Charlotte Precinct, N. Y.

1864 Map of Alexandria Township New York

Alexandria Township New York History and Genealogy

The first improvement in this town was made about 1811 by Le Ray, who caused a clearing to be made at Alexandria Center, to afford facilities to the first settlers, by supplying them with grain until it could be raised by themselves.

Sunken Rock lighthouse

History of Alexandria Bay, New York

The site of this village was selected by Cadwallader Child, in 1804, while surveying a road from the Friends’ settlement to the St. Lawrence, as an eligible place for a port, and accordingly a reservation of a mile square was made by Mr. Le Ray for a village, which was surveyed out for that purpose by Edmund Tucker about 1818.

Barnes Settlement Cemetery

Barnes Settlement Cemetery, Alexandria Bay, New York

View Larger Map  |  Get Directions  |  View Bird’s Eye Barnes Settlement Cemetery, on the Alexandria Center Road, seems isolated, far out in the country, with no house in sight. It covers an expanse of rolling ground well shaded with old trees, and is excellently kept. “No artificial flowers” warns a sign. Several trash barrels are posted in various places to encourage people to pick up after themselves, a large improvement over some cemeteries, where one can never find a place to deposit winter’s litter for Memorial Day clean up. This is a straight-forward cemetery to find. Take Route 26 …
