Inventory of West Hermon Cemtery, Hermon, NY

In June of 2003 I visited West Hermon Cemetery in the town of Hermon. From Rt 11, turn south-east onto Rt 19, just north of the Rt 812 intersection. The cemetery will be on the right-hand side of the road a few tenths of a mile before it intersects with Rt 20. If you miss it and end up at Rt 20, turn back around. It's a bit easier to spot going the other way. 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
