The Friends' Cemetery in Farmington is associated with an old Quaker Meeting
House there. The Quakers' "real" name is the Society of Friends.
The Friends' Burying Ground in Jerusalem is where some of the followers of
Jemima Wilkinson were buried; they were the Society of Universal Friends.
Obviously this can cause a lot of confusion, but since there was never a
Quaker congregation in Yates County (though there were a *few* individual
Quakers), we here just say the Friends when we mean the Universal Friends.
