             Our Society's efforts to rehabilitate the final resting place of more than two dozen members of the Van Cortlandt family took a major step forward in May when Billings Memorials completed the cleaning, repair and straightening of the headstones and obelisks in Hillside Cemetery off Oregon Road. The accompanying photos show the difference in appearance before and after the work. The next phase of the project involves preparation of signage, followed by a dedication ceremony.
