Bushman Cemetery
Henrietta, New York


This cemetery is located on the east side of Telephone Road in the Town of Henrietta. It was established about the year 1812.

A list of tombstone inscriptions for this cemetery was published in the Rochester Post-Express of June 10, 1911 by Anah B. Yates. Another list of tombstone inscriptions was published in Aug. 1980 by Mr. & Mrs. Robert H. Dows and Mr. & Mrs. William Souve of the Irondequoit Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution. This list was made by taking these two previous lists and making a master list. Then a visit to the cemetery was made by Richard T. Halsey on Oct. 4, 1991 and some minor corrections were made to the master list.



Asa; a Rev. War soldier, is said to be buried here by family tradition but no tombstone has ever been recorded
