This cemetery is located in the City of Gloversville, on East State Street, near Kingsborough Avenue.  This recording is part of the Gloversville Recording Project, and forwarded to the Fulton County GenWeb site by James Morrison, Gloversville Historian, who assisted with this major undertaking.    Copies of this transcript are available at the Montgomery County Department of History and Archives and also with the Gloversville City Historian.

The following was generously typed by Laura Stewart.  Laura has transcribed quite a few of Fulton's pages (Fort Johnson, for one) and has a deep interest of the history and area of Johnstown.  She is searching for information on NOLAN families, who worked and resided in Johnstown. Their main occupations were as masons and construction workers; in fact, they built several of the brick houses in Johnstown.
