|Buried: Silas Wright Cemetery, Canton, St. Lawrence County, New York|

|Silas Wright is buried in a small cemetery
in Canton, NY. The cemetery is just off of Main Street and is easy to
find. Wright's grave is even easier to fine, it's the big one in the middle
of the cemetery.
I read on a website that at one time the cemetery was run down. That is not the case today. Somebody is putting in a lot of time to mow the grass, plant flowers and straighten up. Some of the stones are repaired and cleaned. It's a long process but thankfully somebody is doing it.
