In August 1847 the Greenbush Cemetery was incorporated and the incorporators were George Nicholl and Jesse Andrew. Jesse was married to Sarah Nicholl and I would love to know more about this George. Also because of this past query, I found that Jesse Andrew died on 18 May 1900 and wondered if this Greenbush Cemetery was possibly where he might be buried. Does anyone know if the Cemetery has been indexed? Again I want to say many thanks for the help that was given me by one of your kind research persons. She saved me possibly, years of research.
