Little Bow Cemetery - Gouverneur NY
Inventory of Little Bow Cemetery, Gouverneur NY

NOTE: On July 21, 2000 I visited Little Bow Cemetery (located on Gravel Road in Gouverneur) with my digital camera and a pad of paper. I then attempted to photograph and record the remaining tombstones in the cemetery. This cemetery is quite old and many of the stones are completely illegible or only slight reminents remain to indicate the previous existence of stones. I still need to get to SLHCA to compare this list to their previous inventory. Regardless, I hope this is helpful to people. 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
