Seeing Halloween is coming tomorrow - what better to show today than a cemetery. This cemetery is one of seven in the town of Palmyra and that is not including the cemeteries that some farms that date back have on their property. This cemetery is on Church Street, on a hill across from the Catholic Church. The land was originally donated by John Swift, the founded of our town, for the first school. Later, I heard there was a church built there. Then it became the cemetery. Pictures two through six are the graves of John Swift and his wife. These graves date back to the early 1800. You will note that in pictures 17 and 18 is a fairly new grave stone. I believe the family replaced the old 1800 grave stone with a new one. Some of the grave stones have not weathered the years as some of the others. The last picture shows how high up the hill the graves are on. There are people who live in our town and village that are related to some of the people in this cemetery.
