Thomas Cemetery
Rush, New York


This cemetery is also known as the Fishell Cemetery, Warnick Cemetery and Wolf Bridge Cemetery. It is located on the north side of Fishell Road across from Delia Trail. It is purported that in the 1920s the owner of the land threw some of the tombstones into the nearby creek. The only stones visible in 1992 were the ones for Catharine Hart, Lorada Daily and Barbary Thomas. Also parts of tombstones remain that are probably for Sarah Fishell and Anna Thomas.

This list of inscriptions was made by combining a list made in 1929 by Mrs. Celia Green Larkin and Dr. Frances M. Witmer (with assistance by Harold Warner Scott) and also a list made in Aug. 1939 by Mary Moulthrop and Myrte Rice Haynes, along with a visit to the cemetery by Richard Halsey in July 1992.
