Inventory of Parmeter Cemetery - Potsdam, NY

In August 2008, I visited Parmeter Cemetery in the town of Potsdam, NY. The cemetery is located on the east side of County Route 59 (also known as W. Hannawa Rd or Back Hannawa Rd), just south of the intersection with Sweeney Road. The GPS coordinates are: Latitude: 44.45061, Longitude: -74.79049

This cemetery is on a fairly large piece of land, but not many stones are still standing, so I strongly suspect that were many more burials than I found stones to document.

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
