Brief History & Notes:

The town [of Enfield, Tompkins co.] was erected from the southwestern part of the town of Ulysses, March 16, 1821, and was named after the town of Enfield, Conn. The town records from the organization until 1845 are lost, but many of the supervisors have been obtained from other sources.

The first burials were made on the Baker farm. A few stones are still standing. Soon after burials were made near Jonathan ROLFE, and this burial-place was given by him, and in 1876 a number of the citizens met together and elected nine trustees, and a society was organized and incorporated as the Rolfe Cemetery Association, June 10, 1876. Ebenezer HAVENS is the president and Samuel ROLFE secretary. There is a cemetery connected with the old Presbyterian church that is still in use, also one with the Christian church. There are other small ones throughout the town known as the Budd and Woodward cemeteries.

School information [c1879]: 13 districts; 464 children; 388 scholars; 5 male teachers and 19 females; 435 volumes in libraries (value $153); value of school-houses and sites = $7300. [teachers' wages = $2195.22 in the school budget.]
