Yates County Cemetery Project
Part VII: Cemeteries in the town of Jerusalem

Jerusalem Cemeteries: Burials from the record, location unknown

This project has made it fairly clear to the compilers that there are a great many more unmarked burials in the County than exist with gravestones. Either there never was a marker, or perhaps only an uninscribed one; or what was once put up to mark a grave has since disappeared, through neglect, the hazards of lime or in some cases deliberate destruction. Where cemetery records exist, they only need to be compared with remaining stones to make this disparity evident.

In the case of the town of Jerusalem, perhaps because it is so large a town in physical size, and so much of it that was once farmed is now grown up to woods, this disparity is much larger than in the County's other towns. That is to say, many persons are mentioned on one record or another as having been buried in the town, but nowadays there is no marker to prove it.

The compilers placed as many of these people as possible with known relatives, or in the neighborhood where they are known to have lived. The following list is of people for whom this could not, for one reason or another, be achieved. There are no doubt many others, in this town and of course in the others as well, who are unmen­tioned on any record and so have escaped our attention entirely. Realizing this, the compilers felt compelled to list at least those whose burial in the town was noted on various written records, even though the exact location could not now be determined.
