Over the past few months I have read the questions concerning cemeteries in Wyoming County posted on
The Office of Wyoming County Historian located in Warsaw, NY ( an office I was associated with for over 16 years)
has complete lists of burials and locations of all cemeteries within the county. Many of these were copied in the late 1940's by the late Wyoming County Historian Harry S. Douglass and Mr. Lavern Cooley. These were also updated in later years by myself, John G. Wilson and currently by Doris Bannister as burial books or other data has become available.
As to locations I will try to clear up the confusion that now exists on this list. Many of the Route numbers previously given are County Route numbers while some are State Route numbers or Town Route numbers. This can be confusing to people not familiar with the area. To local people, who you will probably ask directions from during
your visits, the names of the roads are more helpful.
I will correct these locations along with the names of the cemeteries as they are known to us historians in separate emails to this list.

You are a challenge for a map lover. I see two cemeteries near Lamont (East
Pike PO) in the 1866 atlas.
One is on Rt 39, just south-west of Lamont. The 1912 map labels it the M.E.
public cemetery, and there is a Methodist Church between it and the Lamont
The other is on the south side of Murphy Rd., half way between Rt 19 and
Campbell Rd. It appears to be just east of a creek. This is not named on
the 1866 atlas, and is just a dot with no label at all in 1912.
There is another just north of East Koy too. It's hard to know where to
stop. Are you interested in EVERY cemetery in Wyoming Co.? If you are, I
would be willing to start looking at my old maps and try to make a list for
you. It's the right season for maps, but not really good for walking
I hope this helps,

I have recently discovered that one of my relatives, DAVID FARGO was a farmer in "the Four Corners area, near Warsaw, NY"
Does anyone know where this would be? The time frame would be the early 1800's.
Thank you for any help
