"Brick Church Cemetery"

Now called "Baptist Rural Cemetery"

Sodus Center, Town of Sodus
Wayne County, NY

Part 1

Baptist Rural Cemetery Sign

Located about six miles north of Lyons village, in the town of Sodus. In the restoration of this cemetery, the stones were taken up, the land cleared and leveled, the stones replaced with no regard to family. It is a tragic sight, to observe when copying. The brick church at this cemetery is said to be the oldest in Wayne County. It is not in general use today (circa 1950).

[Note: the above was written about 1950, by the unknown reader of the cemetery. In 2005, the old brick Baptist church and cemetery are owned by the Baptist Rural Cemetery Association of Sodus Center, Inc. The phone number on the sign is too small to read. For information about how to contact them, please get in touch with the Office of the County Historian in Lyons NY.]

"Mother thou art sleeping now thy dreamless sleep
Low in thy grassy bed
Where nature's dewey tears will weep
Above the lowly dead.
The green sod's growing brightly on
Thy cold and clayey breast
But thou heedest not their dampness now
Thy weary heart's at rest.
O though thou art within the grave
Thou canst not be forgot
Thy memory will brightly gleam
Within some fond loved spot.
And thou mayst sleep in silence on
Within thy calm low bed
Thy sleep will not be broken now
By busy careless tread."

Edwards?, Little Georgie (no dates, no surname, from Clarks records, but on the pages with James & Mary Edwards)

"Little Georgie they have laid thee down among the silent dead
And the earth lies cold and heavy now above thy narrow bed
Then our little angel Georgie will thy spirit sometimes come
Whispering words of love and comfort to the hearts that grieve at home."

None named her but to praise"

Pollok, Bigalow, Oct. 13, 1865, 26y

"We mourn the loss of our beloved
But the Saviour called him away
And he is safely now in heaven
Far better off than we today.
Back to earth we do not wish thee
Though thy form we'd like to see
Soon our days will all be numbered
Then we hope by grace to meet thee."
