Bayside Cemetery is owned and operated by Bayside Cemetery Association.


Bayside Cemetery was established in 1865 by a group of Potsdam residents. Under the leadership of Thomas S. Clarkson Sr. and Bloomfield Usher, prominent citizens and leaders in the Trinity Church, the cemetery bought over 20 acres, known as "Deming's Heights," on the southwest side of the village. Clarkson gave it an additional 15 acreas. Later acquisitions have increased the property to over 80 acres, half of which is still in forest. The first interment was performed in 1867.

About 720 graves were moved from earlier cemeteries within the village on Willow St. and Pierrepont Avenue.

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.
