WILD ROSE CEMETERY

NORTH HARMONY, NY


Located on MORLEY Rd, just a few feet from the intersection of RAMSEY Rd. A secluded, wooded area, this small cemetery is fenced in with an old, still pretty wrought iron fence.  Some stones are in good condition, others missing , off their bases or crumbled; there is quite a large area where nothing shows.

This first group is from stones read by Dee Davidson, 2000.
Second group (soon to follow) is from older records, provided by Donna Mills & Dee Davidson, 2000.
**Indicates corrections and additions provided by Paul Newell after a current reading, 2001.
