VOLUSIA CEMETERY

WESTFIELD, NY


Pigeon Rd  between Parker Rd and  County Rd.21 Westfield, Chautauqua Co NY.
An  old cemetery in a very rural setting, fenced, many of the markers in this cemetery are in  poor condition, many stones are against fences, face down or gone, others are badly eroded, and almost impossible to read; a few are in excellent condition.  One is a very tall monument, 4 sides are written on but only one side is readable and has a list of  11 birth dates; No names are readable another side has some dates of death some markers are in excellent condition, these records from my own reading, July 12, 2000 and an earlier partial reading ,done as a plot map in 1943 by Ralph BREADS, and online family sources; and to be used as a guide only.
