Bethel Cemetery
Photo by: Teresa O'Riley

Located on the South side of Pipestone Road and just East of River Road in Sodus Township.

History & Resources for this study: John Stump, one of the old pioneers of Sodus area, donated the land where the old Bethel Church of Sodus Township once stood,
near the intersection of Pipestone and River roads. He also donated the land close to the church, where Bethel Cemetery is located today. Many of the old time settlers
of this area are buried there. Resources for this old listing is archaic listings compared and researched along with family histories (where available), death certificates,
census reports, newspapers and obituaries. Again, this is meant as a study and should be used as such and not a legal or authoritative document.
