Inventory of Old St James Cemetery, Gouverneur NY

In the Spring of 2002 I visited Old St James Cemetery in Gouverneur to photograph and record the tombstones within the cemetery. Below is the inventory I developed during that visit. Pictures are available for most if not all names. 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: This cemetery included a number of stones with inscriptions in foreign languages including: Croatian/Austrian and Italian. These are included at the beginning of this inventory.

I have included a translation of the Croatian inscriptions provided to me by a kind soul who saw the listings over the internet. Here is also some information he provided regarding the main Croatian locations mentioned:
The town of "Radisici" - Radisici is a small town that is located between Vitina and Ljubuski, Hercegovina. At the turn of the century, it was under the control of the Austro-Hungarian empire. Now it's part of the Federation of Bosna and Hercegovina. The population is nearly 100% Croatian (was then and is now).


Created by Anne M. Cady, May 2002.
