Inventory of Somerville Cemetery - Rossie, NY

In September 2004 I visited Somerville Cemetery in the town of Rossie. From Route 11, turn East at the hamlet of Somerville. The cemetery is a mile or so down the road, where the road takes a bend to the south. 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. All comments can be directed to Anne M. Cady
