This cemetery is located on the north side of Erie Station Road, a short distance east of East River Road, in the Town of Henrietta, in Monroe County, New York. It is in Town Lot 24, Range 6. The land was originally donated by the Brininstool Family, and later the Martin Family may have donated some land. In any case, all the cemetery records are said to have been lost or stolen after Nora Martin died. The inscriptions were read and recorded in June 1939, and recopied in 1977. These records were quite incomplete, so I read all the inscriptions in May 1986. However, due to the ravages of time and weather, some headstones had in the meantime become broken, buried, illegible, or missing. Therefore, some portions of data were taken from the 1939 record; these are indicated by an asterisk(*). Two asterisks(**) indicate that the stone is now missing altogether. Illegible portions are indicated by a question mark. There are also some bracketed comments, most of which are information obtained from other sources. The names are arranged alphabetically by the last name, but are kept in family groups. There are a few large family plots; every stone is listed under the principal name, but if a last name is different, it will also be listed alphabetically.
