Number Six Cemetery
Rush, New York


This cemetery is located on the north side of Number Six Honeoye Falls Road about ¼ mile east of the intersection with Five Points Road. This cemetery is also known as the Sibleyville Cemetery, Palmer Cemetery and the McFarlan Cemetery.

The tombstones in this cemetery were copied twice before. About 1930 a list of inscriptions was made by Mary C. Douglas with help from Anna B. Yates, both of the Irondequoit Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution. Another list of inscriptions was made in 1939 by Mary Moulthrop and Myrte Rice Haynes, also of the same D.A.R. Chapter. A combined list was made from these earlier records and a visit to the cemetery was made on September 25, 1992 by Richard T. Halsey and corrections and four additions were made to the master list.
