Stones read and transcribed April 2001

By Cheryl Maybee Smith

The grouping of names means the names are all in a group or on a single tombstone.  ( ) are comments that I have added.

This cemetery is located on the east bank of the Genesee River and State Route 19 in the Town of Amity, Allegany County, New York.  About one mile north of Scio, New York.  It should be mentioned that the cemetery has been flooded several times over the years.

Also compare with the older DAR list for Rogers Cemetery.
