See Sept/Oct issue of (585)magazine for this article on how volunteers have renovated the historic Rochester graveyard, under the stewardship of our friend John Curran.  John is a member of the 19th Ward Community Association's History and Archives Committee.  As the opening sentence says, "one of Rochester's best-kept secrets is a pioneer cemetery in the 19th Ward."  

Read history of the cemetery and recent caretaking and landscape projects where numerous civic groups have leant help.  With resting places for at least one Revolutionary War veteran, others from the War of 1812, Civil War, Spanish-American War, and civilians.  It is on Congress Ave. near Genesee St. 

(585) is available at Wegmans, near the newspapers, not in the magazine aisle.  Circulation is 10,000.  It is also available at Tops.
