. Many articles have been written about the Fitzsimmons Cemetery, sometimes referred to as the “Old Settlers Cemetery”, “Griswold Cemetery” or “Side of the Road Cemetery”. It is located at the corner of Maple Avenue and Cedar Street in Southport. But what do we know about the pioneers who are buried there. The sign says “Contains the remains of many pioneers and members of the Sullivan-Clinton Campaign”. And so it does, indeed.
