Registered to Town of Fort Erie. This small family plot was set aside in the early 1800's by the original Fretz family members that came from Pennsylvania, New York, before the turn of the century. It is situated in the middle of a farm field; on the north side of Bertie Rd., west of Point Abino. The greater number of the stones are from the Fretz family, all are very old; however there are other names to be found here, such as Huffman, Johnston, Rickert, Sherk, McMurry & Kennedy.
