Old Burns (aka Bull Road) Cemetery
Old Burns Cemetery (aka Bull Road Cemetery), Town of Burns, Allegany County, NY
Located on Bull Road, just off Route 961F. This old cemetery is showing signs of neglect. Brush and debris were removed from it in 1977, and the cemetery has been kept mowed. There are many broken markers and many monuments are toppled over on their sides or lying flat on the ground.
The following recording was done by former Burns Town Historian Marjorie Mastin, (see accompanying news article and picture) and a handwritten copy was given to the Essential Club Free Library in Canaseraga New York. This transcription was taken from that record by Mary Rhodes. (2005)
From the Hornell Evening Tribune, October 26, 1977, Page 6
