Inventory of Downerville Cemetery - Russell, NY

In July 2008, I visited Downerville Cemetery in the town of Russell. This is a very isolated cemetery, located about 2 miles east on Downerville Road in a very wooded area. There are only a few monuments in the cemetery, but it is well cared for including flowers and flags. The GPS coordinates are: Latitude: 44.43411, Longitude -75.10792

I photographed and recorded the tombstones within the cemetery as well as I could. 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
