Inventory of Gale Cemetery, Piercefield, NY

In summer 2009, I visited Gale Cemetery in the town of Piercefield. Gale Cemetery is located on Route 3 between the hamlets of Childwold and Gale. Its entrance is .2 miles west of the main entrance of the Massawepie Scout Reservation. I photographed and recorded all the markers I could find within the cemetery. 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,
