First Burying Ground Cemetery

First Burying Ground Cemetery, Town of Rushford, Allegany County, NY

first1

first2

This very old cemetery is located on Brooks Avenue in the Town of Rushford.  It is a well kept, active cemetery.  The old section of the cemetery contains many stones that are just barely readable.  The following list was compiled several years ago by Homer Norton, former historian for the Town of Rushford.  Recording an old cemetery like this is a difficult job, as many of the old stones are barely discernable.   Hats off to Mr. Norton for even attempting it.  The list was updated (slightly) by a walk through with a digital camera in January 2006, by Mary Rhodes.

"Probably the first place of interment was the 'First Burying Ground' of Rushford in the west part of the Village where burials were made as early as 1816. The deed of this property from David and Judith Searle to David Searle, Horatio Smith, and Matthew Cady bears date of May 1, 1832. For some years the grounds were neglected but through the efforts of a A.M. Taylor, a meeting of lot owners was held in August, 1894. A. M. Taylor, J. B. McFarland, and Samuel A. Hardy were elected trustees. In 1910, additional land was purchased from W. S. Mulliken."--"The Spirit of Rushford, 1808-1958". See also The First Burying Ground in Rushford.
