Seneca Nation cemetery relocation plans were initiated due to the essential flowage easement needs of the federal government upon the construction of Kinzua Dam, which included the displacement of many Seneca Indian cemeteries. Plans were executed to properly move those from affected cemeteries to alternate cemeteries. The documents provided by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers at the links on this page will allow family members to locate their loved ones by name and determine which cemetery and plot number they were moved from, and to which cemetery and plot number they had been moved. Documents have been redacted in places to protect privacy. If you have further questions or if you are seeking other documents, please contact our Freedom of Information Act representative at 412-395-7407.
