I'm not completely sure but I believe many of the cholera victims of 1832 in Rochester were buried in Mount Hope Cemetary. " Throughout much of the 19th century, Rochester experienced several cholera epidemics. Each summer, citizens braced themselves for the onset of this terrible pestilence. The epidemic of 1832, which killed 119 Rochester citizens, spurred the creation of Mount Hope Cemetery. General Burr was my GGG Grandfather. I live in Rochester and can look this up at the cemetary if you like.
