Yates County Cemetery Project
Part IX: Hillside Cemetery in Dundee


Rapalee Family Plot: Notes

Rapalee family plot This is the original cemetery here, a family plot on the Clinton Rapalee farm, where the young son of Clinton and Lucinda Rapalee was laid to rest in 1862. A few years later the family decided to establish a cemetery to serve the growing village and environs, and maintained it as such until in 1908 when the Hillside Cemetery Association was organized. The village of Dundee took over some 20 years later and owns and maintains it today; however, the family plot is not technically part of Hillside, and members of the family still keep it up and reserve the right to be buried here.

The plot is located at the top of the hill to the north of the main cemetery, across the driveway above Section A.
