Chesebrough Burials

(Town of Genoa,NY) #71

Cemetery on Pine Hollow Road.  Located on North Side of road between Rt. 90 and Goodrich Hill Road.  

There is a wooded area, perhaps 200' by 50', almost impenetrable.  The ground is covered with myrtle; but bushes, small trees and long-thorned brambles make it just about impossible to take a step.  I found only one stone and that was as clear as the day it was carved - this was the Chesebrough stone.  Mrs. Coulson visited here at a different time of the year and found the others.  There is evidence of other graves, and some field stone markers are visible.
