West Chazy, Town of Chazy, Clinton County, N.Y.
- This cemetery was completely copied by Hugh & Charles Woodbury "Woody" McLellan on June 6, 1937.
- McLellan wrote: "One-half mile north of West Chazy, in the Town of Chazy, New
York, on Route 22. This small graveyard, well kept and fenced, is situated on
the farm of Mr. William E. Stiles; although not shown on Beer's Atlas of
Clinton County, 1869, it may be more clearly indicated as on Lot 49 of Deans
Patent, near the south side of a brook called in the Atlas, Boyington Brook, on
the east side of the road, and about four hundred feet from it."
- These records are part of what is known as the McLellan Cemetery Records. Beginning in 1933, Hugh McLellan, his son, Charles Woodbury “Woody” McLellan, and his daughter-in-law, Hulda (Bredenburg) McLellan traveled to various cemeteries throughout Clinton County copying the inscriptions from cemetery stones. Upon his death, these records were to have been donated to Cornell University. However, Dr. Allan Everest of SUNY Plattsburgh convinced the McLellan family to keep the records locally, and they were eventually donated to SUNY Plattsburgh. Complete sets of these records are also available at the Plattsburgh Public Library, the Clinton County Historian's office in Plattsburgh, and the Northern New York American-Canadian Genealogical Society in Keeseville, New York. Each Town Historian has a copy of their segment as well.
