Visiting More Historic Cemeteries of Bedford, New York

Right before Hurricane Sandy blasted through, I posted a blog about a visit to Chichester Cemetery, one of thirty historic burying grounds in the Bedford, New York area.  I also introduced you to a group of volunteers, called the Friends of Bedford Burying Grounds, whose mission is to conserve and preserve these outdoor history museums carved in stone.  Chichester is one cemetery that is a work in progress.  Today, I would like to show you some others.  Two are considerable challenges awaiting help.  Another has major historical significance to the Town of Bedford.  And the fourth is a burying ground that has been retrieved from the ravages of time and recklessness.
