Inventory of Olin cemetery - Canton, NY

In July 2007, I visited Olin Cemetery on Sykes Road in the town of Canton.

I photographed and recorded the tombstones within the cemetery as well as I could. The data below consists of the inventory I developed during that visit merged with the inventory done in 1964 by Canton's Town Historian, Edward Heim.

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


NOTE: The 1964 inventory included a very helpful map which can be accessed through the following Link: Map of Olin Cemetery

The numbers shown on the map are included in the inventory below. Also, in the inventory, text shown in bold is corrected from the 1964 inventory or new graves not shown in the 1960 inventory; text in Italics is information or stones from 1964 that could not be found in 2007.



Created by Anne M. Cady, July 2007.
