Palmer Cemetery
Franklin County, New York

Contributed Sep 15, 2000 by Gerta [gangenealogy@aol.com]. Total records = 20.

This is a very small cemetery located on what is now known as Palmer Road in the Village of Dickinson Center, Franklin County, New York. It is located across the road from my grandfather's farm house. When I was very young I used to walk through this cemetery and it always saddened me to see so many young people buried here. The cemetery was quite rundown 55+ years ago and needed a lot of repairs. A few years back a group of young people went into this cemetery and cleaned out weeds and other debris that had collected over the last 75-100 years. They did the best they could but some stones are upside down on the ground, some are sunk into the ground too far to read, and others have somehow either disappeared or never were there. I was unable to come up with the spouse name in most cases but was able to find out who their parents were from family members and neighbors who still live in Dickinson Center. Although this is the Palmer Cemetery, today there are few Palmers living in the area. Many have relocated and the others are dead.

What makes us Different?

Single-sourced, not crowd-sourced

Each transcription we publish comes from a single-source, be it the cemetery office, government office, church office, archived document, a tombstone transcriber. Other websites already do an excellent job of crowd-sourcing a single cemetery together. But genealogists also need to see the original records from a single source. That's what we offer.
