Inventory of Bacon Cemetery - West Potsdam, NY

In July 2008, I visited Bacon Cemetery on Route 345, approximatelly half-way between Potsdam and Madrid. The GPS Coordinates for the cemetery are: Latitude: 44.69776, Longitude: -75.05957.

This is a very old cemetery with multiple Revolutionary War Soldiers buried in it. The earliest burial found was 1816 and the latest were three members of the bacon family in 1969.

I photographed and recorded the tombstones within the cemetery as well as I could. Below is the inventory I developed during that visit. When a picture is available, the name of the person will be 'clickable' to bring up the picture. NOTE: The only names recorded here are for people who had markers that I could find in the cemetery. It does not include any other people who might have been buried but for whom no marker could be found. All comments can be directed to Anne M. Cady
