Marc "Pierre Villeroy" de GARMEAUX

  • Birth 1648 France
  • Death Mar 1741 Albany, Albany County, New York, USA
  • Burial Menands, Albany County, New York, USA
  • Memorial ID 54064702

Patriarch of one of Colonial Albany`s first French families, Pierre DeGarmeaux died in March 1741 and was buried from the Albany Dutch Church. Pierre and spouse Catharina Vanderheyden`s children established themselves in Albany and throughout the region. The DeGARMEAUX family maintained a steady presence in Albany throughout the Eighteenth Century. The name de GARMEAUX was adopted after Pierre VILLEROY was involved in an altercation with Canadian authorities and it was derived from the area in France where he was born. The name evolved over the years to DeGarmo. All of the current DeGarmo decendants came from Pierre and Catharina.

As the town grew there eventually became a space problem at the Cemetery which was at the center of town next to the Church. The town Council decided to move the graves to a new location North of town on open land where space was available. Headstones were not erected just laid over moved graves. This was satisfactory in the beginning; however were overgrown and badly weather beaten over time. Photos of markers are a problem as markers are hard to find and read.

The Cemetery is called "Albany Rural Cemetery"
