Special Thanks to Carl Tucker for updating our information.
"I noticed the year you have listed on Hillcrest Cemetery (also known as Abbotts Corners Cemetery Assoc.) is 1872.
Our records state that the Cemetery actually was started as a church cemetery in 1811.
I personally have found a stone from 1810.
My family has been running and working at the cemetery since before 1931.
My great grandfather started that year as caretaker.
I have worked there since 1975 and my father is the current Supt.

Chris J. writes:
We know of an old 'abandoned' home (it's for sale) not too far down Abbott Road,
where the homesteader's wife and son are buried in the back yard together.
Private property burials were apparently prevalent during the middle 19th century in Orchard Park.
