Old Mendon Cemetery
Mendon, New York



This cemetery is located on the east side of the Pittsford - Mendon Road, north of the hamlet of Mendon. This is on Town Lot #30 of the 11 Thousand Acre Tract.

It is important to note that the old lists of inscriptions for this cemetery are not correct. In the Aug. 14, 1921 issue of the Honeoye Falls Times was published a list by Mrs. Anah B. Yates that said that it was from "Old Mendon Grounds." This was later written that all the persons on the list were buried in the Old Mendon Cemetery when in fact the persons on the list were buried in many small cemeteries in the Town of Mendon. Thus the list by Mary T. Douglas dated June 10, 1931 and the list done in 1939 by Mary Moulthrop and Myrte Rice Haynes both contain many inscriptions that are in other cemeteries. This list was compiled by Richard T. Halsey in October 1988 with corrections sent by Diane Ham, Mendon Historian, in 2005.
