Richburg Cemetery

Richburg, New York

DAR List

Across the street from the Brick Church, on land once owned by Alvan Richardson is the local cemetery and here many of our pioneer settlers were buried, Mr. Richardson in 1857, his wife, Alathere, four years earlier. Probably the first burial was in 1830.

The Richburg Cemetery Association was formed June 15, 1905 and elected their Directors - D.E. Brokaw, M.A. Jordan, M.E. Skinner and G.W. Smith.

Read the sad story of a young girl, Daisy Taylor, who is buried in the Richburg Cemetery.
