Beers-Billinghurst Cemetery
Pittsford, New York


stone plaque


This very small family cemetery was originally at 564 Mendon Road in Pittsford, NY.

Probably sometime in the 1920s, a boulder with a bronze plaque replaced the original tombstones. The plaque was donated by Zona Gale, a descendant of the Beers and Billinghurst familes.

Information received from Isabella H. Hart, (former Pittsford Town Historian and Secretary of the Pittsford Cemetery Association) states that: "A boulder now located in Pittsford Cemetery at Lot #337 was moved by the Town of Pittsford on October, 11, 1961 when the Vernon Welch farm was sold for a development and by court order the five bodies were placed in grave #4 on the last half of this lot, #337."

The bronze plaque reads:
