A Pioneer Cemetery (Sanford) 1.

This cemetery is located in the town of Palmyra, Wayne County, New York; about 2 miles north of Newark, New York, on the north side of the East Palmyra-Newark Road, also known as the Slab City Road. A lane called Hazen Lane runs north from the main highway directly through it, cutting it into halves. It is on a rise of ground surrounded by stately trees, the ground showing evidence of having been cut over a year or two since. It is probably one of the oldest cemeteries in Wayne County, as in it are buried some of the Long Island Colonists who came up the Ganargua River about 1792 and settled East Palmyra. Original memorandum of purchase bears the signatures of William Hopkins, Elias Reeves, Joel Foster, Abraham Foster and Luther Sanford.
