(Town of Genoa, NY) #68
Cemetery located near and south of a place called Pine Hollow on the Moravia Quadrangle, U.S. Geological Map, on Rt. 90, about 700 feet from the road, on the west side, on about a 20 foot rise.
This cemetery is about 100' x 50', entirely fenced in with wire, although we were able to crawl over one spot where a post was down. The gate was wired together and a small tree blocked the gate anyway. The ground was covered with myrtle, there were many woodchuck holes, some graves sunken two feet, and we discovered we were walking on headstones completed covered with a mat of myrtle and sod which was difficult to remove by hand. Doubtless, we missed some stones because of this. There were a few stones with nothing on them and a couple entirely eroded or broken up. (Copied Oct. 1962 by A. Moe and M. Crosby)
