Locust Cemetery
Sweden, New York


This cemetery is located on the east side of the Orleans - Monroe County Line Road just north of the Fourth Section Road (Rt. 31A). It is in very bad shape and many stones have been knocked over and have grass growing over them.

The tombstones in this cemetery have been copied three times before this. The first list was made in 1929 by Mrs. Mary B. Wells and Frances M. Witmer. The second list was made in 1935 by Mary T. Douglas. The third list was made on Sept. 6, 1935 by Mrs. Edward D. Stewart. This list was made by combining the three previous lists and then corrected by a visit by Richard T. Halsey on June 27, 1989.

The * character is used for an illegible letter or number.
