Trombly Single Stone
Chazy, New York
- This cemetery was visited and copied June 22, 1947, by Hugh & Charles Woodbury "Woody" McLellan.
- McLellan wrote: "This single stone was shown us by Dudley TROMBLY; it is
about 20 rods from the road, back of the house in which he lives. He said that
the stone was loose, but the foundation was intact; he also found the loose
plain marble footstone, which is now mislaid."
- 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.
