Little Rhode Island Cemetery, Genesee, New York

Hibbard Road, Genesee, New York

Transcribed by Charles Barrett


Note:   This cemetery is better known as the "Little Rhode Island Cemetery", so called because most of the pioneers of the town of Genesee migrated down from the state of Rhode Island and are buried here.  Most of these people were Seventh Day Baptists.  Several Ministers are buried there.  It faces due east-west as the religious tradition was to rise up and face the east on Judgement Day.

There are quite a few graves that have no markers nor are there any records to indicate who was buried there.  There were about 25 or 30 graves marked “unknown ”on the map.
