BICKFORD-ROBERTSON FAMILY CEMETERY
A New Reading
Bickford-Robertson Cemetery, Hughes Road, Town of Russia, Herkimer County.
"This cemetery is located on private property on Hughes Rd., about 1/4 mile before the Wheelertown Road.
The cemetery is far back from the road and contains only one tombstone with the following names listed. We went
right by Hughes road the first time (it's all dirt roads up there with no signs) and came off Wheelertown Rd. onto the
main road. We then went down several miles and came on to the other end of Hughes. Of course this was
also all dirt and not the best but we drove along for about 500 miles and seemed to be almost there when the road ended.
A bridge had washed out and we couldn't go any further. We then returned back to Wheelertown Road the way we came
and backtracked. After a while we found it and we were lucky enough that someone lived around there and led us right to
the cemetery. "
Bickford, Elizabeth, dau of Owen & Rachel Bickford, 1859-1859
"The footstones mentioned are lined up in front of the stone and behind the two trees on the right side of the top photo. The cemetery is not maintained at all but for one way out in the woods is not as bad as some I've been to."
