So todays CEMETERY OF THE DAY is … The Brock Cemetery, Grafton, NY. Located on Brock Road, just east of Red Pond Road (Rt 87) in Grafton, NY. I can’t see that it is clearly visible from the street. You may have to get out and walk back into the woods a little to find it.
Wells, Elisha Sr.(Sep 19, 1758 – Feb 15, 1818)1st Cousin 5Xs Removed (Elisha’s parents, Matthew Wells Sr. and Bridget Burdick are buried in the Wells Cemetery in DeRuyter, NY.)
