Yates County Cemetery Project
Part IX: Cemeteries in the town of Barrington



Knapp cemetery

Matthew Knapp moved to Barrington from Orange County NY so early in the 19th century that there was only one house between him and Penn Yan, and that was a tavern belonging to James Finley that once stood near the Milo line. This cemetery contains the graves of Matthew and his wife and several other family members, as well as members of some of the neighboring families.

The cemetery is by the side of the road, which is no longer a public thoroughfare. The plot is on private land owned by Matthew’s descendants; it was read by Wilfred Knapp, for many years the town historian.

The plot is sometimes called the Knapp-Hopkins Cemetery . Abraham and Naomi Hopkins’ daughter Rachel married Matthew and Mary Knapp’s son Jesse C. Knapp. The young couple lived with his parents in a large double house that once stood near where the cemetery is today.
