Inventory of Grant/French/South Potsdam Cemetery - Potsdam, NY

In the Summer of 2010, I visited Grant's cemetery (also known as French or South Potsdam cemetery) in the town of Potsdam in St. Lawrence county. The cemetery is located on the north side of RT 11, between Potsdam and Canton. It is south of the Wright Road intersection and north of Co Rd 35. GPS Coordinates are: Latitude: 44.63580, Longitude: -75.08000. During my visit the cemetery was fairly badly overgrown, so there may have been markers that I missed.

I photographed and recorded the tombstones within the cemetery as well as I could. When a picture is available, the name of the person will be 'clickable' to bring up the picture. All comments can be directed toAnne M. Cady
