In May of 2003 I visited Marshville Cemetery in the town of Hermon. The cemetery is on the left side of
Rt 21, south of the village of Hermon and just north of Marshville Road.
I photographed and recorded the tombstones 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.
It was raining hard while I was taking the pictures (with one hand while the other hand held a large umbrella),
so some pictures are dark, but fortunately, the raindrops don't show up in the pictures.
SECOND NOTE: I was provided some additional information on this cemetery by Rosanne Holt. The information from Rosanne is shown in Italics.
