The list of names came from the reading done by Harriet Cole Bowen in 1923 for the DAR. She wrote:
"Old Village Cemetery"
"Palmyra was once a pretentious Pioneer Town, with platted acreage, bank, furniture factory, large gristmill etc., so that what remains of the Old Cemetery lies behind the row of Village lots facing US 223 on the south, directly south of the Village.
A very small plot remains today and no records in the Town Clerk's Office regarding it's organization or burial of the bodies. These few inscriptions are all there is to remind one of early settlers. The inscriptions were taken in 1923 and many of them were hard to read. They are as follows:"

At the bottom of the page she notes:
"Many of the burials in the Old Cemetery were removed to the New Village Cemetery."

Due to new evidence we know for certain there are no more graves in this cemetery. The old head stones will be removed soon to a new location TBD.
