Cemeteries

Cemetery recordings are wonderful pieces of evidence.  They can give so much insight and clues as to extended families, maiden names, places of birth and death, etc.  It is probably why these records are so valuable and so sought after.  In Fulton County, this was acknowledged early on.  Several D.A.R. members took recordings of some of the oldest cemeteries in the 1930s and again in the 1960s.  Also, one of the earlier Fulton County Historians, Dr. R. M. Palmer, took this to heart and made several recordings in the 1940's.

Another extended effort again took place more recently, through the efforts of the current County Historian, Lewis Decker, to whom we owe so much for making these records and other information available.  It is without doubt that his work is meticulous, thorough, well documented and deeply appreciated.   It started in the late 1970's;  he and a group that became the "Fulton County Cemetery and Historical Research Project"  and the C. E. T. A. obtained a grant to accomplish this goal.  They traveled through each of Fulton's townships and went about the time consuming task of recording, cleaning and restoring cemeteries throughout Fulton County.  They verified older recordings, and you will find as you explore the cemeteries, that some stones no longer exist due to erosion or decay, but were recorder earlier.  You will also discover that through their extensive search, that they found stones not recorded earlier, those that were buried or broken were restored as best that could be:  A treasure saved.

This information was then compiled, compared to earlier recordings, proofed and edited and bounded in books.  Each town received a listing  - from the small, abandoned cemeteries to the largest cemeteries in the county.  If you have ever gone to some of these cemeteries, you can appreciate the effort, dedication and time it took to complete this project because after the grant expired, Lewis Decker, his wife and many other volunteers continued the effort.  Some of these books are also available at the Montgomery County Department of History and Archives in Fonda and also at Albany State Library in Albany.

As cemetery listings continue to be added to these pages, it cannot go on without acknowledging these great efforts and the teams that made this possible.  In the front of each book, lists the team the helped with the project, an index, a map and directions of the cemeteries and other miscellaneous information about the project.

More recently still, starting in 1993, Dave Bixby took on a large project to again go through and find old listings of cemeteries in several towns, including the Fulton County towns fof Broadalbin, Mayfield and Perth and compare them with existing cemeteries. His introductory page provides a lot of information about his project.
