|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
This is the Dibble-Tuttle Cemetery in Salisbury, Herkimer County, New York.
"This cemetery is located on Herkimer County Highway #130, on the Emmonsburg Road in the Town of Salisbury. It is located approximately 6/10th of a mile from the hamlet of Salisbury Center. NY. The Salisbury Center Grange #624 has made this project a part of their Community Service Project for the year 2000. Mr. Kenneth Mowers and Mr. Richard Jorrey, who are former residents of the Emmonsburg Road, undertook this project to review all the records and markers of the Dibble Cemetery and compile an updated census of burials during the time from 1800 - 2000, a period of 200 years. The land where this cemetery was dedicated was at one time a part of the Tuttle farm. One observation we noted was that there were many Dibell's listed on tombstones in this cemetery, but none with the spelling of Dibble. We assume that from the early 1800's to 1915 the spelling of the name was changed from Dibell to Dibble. We found that in the Corporation papers, that the word cemetery was spelled cemetery. According to the authority, Mr. Webster, the correct spelling is cemetery and we have changed it accordingly in our report."
The above note came from the Cemetery Association's note, but I discovered that Nathaniel Dibble's name was spelled Dibble on the 1810, 1820 and 1840 Census records, so we need to check each stone to be sure of the spelling, even though others are reported to have also done that.
