The Hause Hill Cemetery is on the west side of Pulver Road (less than one-tenth of a mile south of Kendall Road). Look for a plank leading over the drainage ditch on the right of the road, and head up the hill into the trees. The graveyard is in a clearing there. William and Martha Hause are in the front on the right, near the trees, facing the road.

   My parents actually found their graves while on the way to visit my brother, Eric (who now lives in Ithaca). It took quite a while to find the tiny pathway leading off the roadway—even with a map. The area is still mostly wilderness. The graveyard is maintained by the Daughters of the American Revolution, and the memorial near their tiny gravestones, adorned with the US Flag.
   Wilma Teed-Perry, who grew up on the property in the mid-twentieth century, remembers: "Many times I wandered the fields and explored the old Hause farm. There was an old brick oven out back that Mrs. Hause used for cooking." She picked wild blackberries, huckleberries and wild strawberries. "I walked to the cemetery where my grandmother and her infant son was buried. It was an old, old cemetery. My mother had told me not to eat the apples that were from the apple trees on the graveyard. Those apples were white and very sweet. She never knew I ate them. I wasn't about to tell her I had done that."
