Cemetery notes and/or description:
This cemetery was converted to the current Meyers Park in 1897, and all the graves were either moved or covered. Before the conversion, the local newspaper, The Herkimer Citizen, published a list of the gravestones and their inscriptions on Tuesday, 14 Sept 1897. “Two representatives of the CITIZEN spent all day Friday copying the inscriptions and many of the lines of poetry on more than 400 head stones. The list is valuable from the fact that many of the stones will be placed over the graves and covered up when the grading is begun.”

The disposition of the gravestones and the bodies is not certain—some were definitely moved to Oak Hill Cemetery in Herkimer. A complete transcription of the article, including all the gravestone inscriptions, is at the Herkimer County, NY, GenWeb website under Cemetery Readings.

The memorials listed here seem to be for those who were originally buried here, according to the newspaper list, but whose graves have not been found elsewhere.
