A petition verified the 7th day of March. 1936, having been presented to me by Gooding H.

Now, on motion of Willis C. Ellis, attorney for the said petitioner, it is ORDERED, that all persons interested therein, show cause before me at a Special Term of this Court to be held at the Judge's Chambers, 1-3 Greeve Block, in the City of Canandaigua, NY, on the 30th of March, 1936, at ten o'clock in the forenoon, or as soon thereafter as counsel can be heard, why an order should not be made directing the removal of the remains of the said deceased persons from the neglected "Theophilus Short" Burial Lot to Brookside Cemetery within the said Village of Shortsville, N. Y., and also fixing the amount of the expense of such removal and re-interment, including the expense of the proceeding under this section, and for such other and further order or relief in the premises as shall be just and meet under the circumstances.

And it is FURTHER ORDERED that notice of this application be published for two successive weeks in the "Shortsville Enterprise" a newspaper published at the Village of Shortsville, NY.  

Dated, Canandaigua, NY, Mar. 9, 1936   HORACE W. FITCH, Ontario Co. Judge
