Palmer's Corners Cemetery

Items in parenthesis added for clarity.

This is a small cemetery in northeast Sherburne, near the Brookfield line, on the north side of the road. It is within sight of the farm occupied for many years by Silas Ames, and in recent years, by his son, Clarence Ames. This cemetery is in a sadly neglected condition, overrun with bushes and small trees; doubtless many graves in addition to the following were orginally in this cemetery.

Inscriptions were read in November 1954.
