The Barringer Cemetery list was donated and prepared by Joan Jones. The original list from the Herkimer County Historical Society stated no date of reading nor reader. We're always seeking info about families in our cemetery lists. Joan kindly provided us with a brief genealogy of the Furman family and additional notes on the recent condition of the cemetery.

"With the exception of the full dates for the FURMANs, this list was copied from the Herkimer County Historical Society notebook containing Cemetery Listings in Herkimer County. A 1998 visit to the cemetery confirmed most of the dates. The cemetery is well kept and most stones are readable. There are several small stones with no readable inscriptions." Joan Jones
