This list of the cemeteries of Jefferson County is far from complete. We are indebted to such able volunteers as Gus Rogers and the Bartletts, Alice Corbett, and Gordie Brown for information they have collected, arranged, and made freely available to the public. Debbie Quick has also made pilgrimages to cemeteries in the Six Town area to provide information. We link to several cemeteries found on Mrs. Corbett's page. Larry Corbett has very large files, from which he provides information. Harold Sanderson has extracted burial information on his specialty, the Civil War soldiers. His information can often, but not always, be found in other files.

The largest single contribution consists of the cemeteries researched by the Gravestone Scribes, John and Ellen Bartlett and Ellen's father Gus Rogers. These cemeteries are updated annually by Mr. Rogers. They are designated by "Bar". A second list, compiled by Debbie Quick, has been published in the Newsletter for the Historical Association of South Jefferson. That designation is "Sou". The list of cemeteries on Fort Drum has no contact person available. It was published in an issue of the JCNYGS Informer. Jeanine McAvoy supplies information for Brookside Cemetery in Watertown, and Larry Corbett provides lookups for North Watertown. AC is Alice Corbett, who has been working on the city cemeteries. Much of her work is from old DAR records, which were never complete, and have never been updated, but they are the only ones available for those cemeteries. Thanks to a number of volunteers, Brookside is now available on this website. The newest contributor to this page is Sid Shafer, who has allowed us to link to cemeteries on their site. They are actively inventorying Jefferson County cemeteries, and are identified as the SS clicks below. We have integrated names he has given us alphabetically in our list, rather than having a separate list.

Some cemeteries have more than one name, notably the ones on Fort Drum. Gus Rogers reports that finding the original or historical name for a cemetery is often difficult. I have tried to list all the names I found, but some are sure to be missing. As with all our projects, we welcome additons, corrections, and particularly here, locations. We will be adding more information as it comes to light. The first column contains the name of the cemetery, with variations noted.

The second column is the township in which the cemetery may be found. "City" indicates the City of Watertown. The third column is an attempt at locating the cemetery so that the searcher can find it. An attempt has been made by the JCNYGS to provide locations for every cemetery in Jefferson County in their newsletter, INFORMER (click here for a table of contents for the issues). The fourth column is the contact, as described above, at which you may find more information.

Sadly Sid Shafer and Harold Sanderson are deceased. Much of their work is still available here and on other sites.

Gus Rogers is in his 90s and has retired from research.

Following are the names and e-mail addresses of the contacts. The highlighted contact abbreviations are clickable.
