#10 & #11 SAND HILL ROAD CEMETERIES
TONAWANDA INDIAN RESERVATION
The documentation I have at this date on these two cemeteries is from "Tombstone Inscriptions From
The Abandoned Cemeteries and Farm Burials of Genesee County"
compiled by Laverne C. Cooley. This
book was printed in the 1950's and is now out of print. However, copies can be found at the Richmond
Memorial Library and the Genesee County Historian's Office, both in Batavia.
Also the data gathered by the Alabama Historical Society for the "Alabama Sesqui-Centennial 1826 -
1976"
printed in 1976.
The Peter's Family Plot inscriptions have been varified by Terry Abrams.
(# 10) UN-NAMED FAMILY PLOT
or Peter's Family Plot
(According to information from the Veteran's Administration in Batavia, gatherd by the Alabama
Historical Society
in 1976 and from updated list I received 9/24/1999) New information has been
added to this list thanks to Terry Abrams walking this cemetery and recording the tombstones. They
are noted with an asterick. Thank you Terry!
