This is an old recording taken in the 1930s.
This is recorded as the "second halfof the older part" of Prospect Hill Cemetery, sections two and five. The cemetery was never fully recorded and this is the only information transcribed and available. Please beware of possible errors. Females, for the most part, have been crossed referenced, maiden and married names so you may want ot check both surnames.
Copied 1934 by Mrs. J. V. W. Miller, Gloversville N. Y. Contributed by James Morrison, Gloversville Town Historian.

This recording was started in 1979 by the late Fulton County Historian, Lewis Decker. The 1930's recording above covers mainly parts of sections 1, 2, 5, and 8. As you can see below, that is a very small part of the cemetery. And although the 1930's recording was alphabetized, Mr. Decker went far and beyond that and recorded the section, the plot and mapped it so you can easily find the grave. What is now online is all that the current County Coordinator has, though there is more to this listing wherever it may be.
Though the entire cemetery was transcribed, only Section 1 was ever in final proof stages. The rest of the cemetery is "draft" copies. Therefore, as always, it is stressed, please CONFIRM the data by other evidence and/or sources. There are bound to be typos and possibly incorrect data. As always in transcribing, letters are sometimes hard to read, especially on old tombstones that erode and innocently through transcriptions. Again, please verify any information!
