In the S.E. corner of the Town of Romulus, Seneca County, N.Y.
NOTE: this cemetery is also known as the David Covert Cemetery.
It is located on a wooded knoll in the Ridgewood Campground, which was at one time the David Covert Farm. This is on a road leading from Route 89 to Hayt's Corners. 19 of these inscriptions (indicated by an asterisk) were also collected earlier by Jessie H. Finch, et al., and later published in Some Cemeteries of the Between the Lakes Country. Any data read by them which differ from mine are enclosed in parentheses. Additional comments by me are in brackets [ ].
