Inventory of Buck's Bridge Cemetery- Potsdam, NY

In the Summer of 2010, I visited Buck's Bridge Cemetery in the hamlet of Buck's Bridge, town of Potsdam in St. Lawrenc county. The cemetery is located on Cemetery Road off of CR 14.

I photographed and recorded the tombstones within the cemetery as well as I could. The cemetery was fairly overgrown due to the wet weather this year, so some stones may have been missed in the long grass (Note: Cemetery picture below was taken a year earlier, when cemetery was freshly mowed). 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. All comments can be directed to Anne M. Cady





Created by Anne M. Cady, October 2008.
