I found the cemetery were my ancestor, Richard Buell, was buried in 1819 in what is now S. Lyon St. in the  City of Batavia. That cemetery was dug up and moved before 1900. I found some of his descendants in the Town of Elba. I also found other distant relations in the Town of Pavilion. See if you can find any of your relatives in this 1876 atlas.
