This small CURTIS cemetery is on Curtis Road. (Rt. 221) in the Town of Salisbury, Herkimer County, just north of the intersection of Red Mill Road. The reading was taken October 17, 1997 by several local residents. The list was donated by Elaine Carlin, Salisbury Town Clerk, John Alvord Kingsley, a Bloodough descendant, and Ms. Helen Ives, well-known Town of Salisbury historian.

Our thanks for typing the Curtis Cemetery go to Kathy Brockway. Kathy is seeking Alpheus LAMPHERE, b. 1771, Kent, CT; d. 1850, Salisbury Center, Herkimer Co. and his wife Hanna SATTERLEE, b. 1776; d. 1850, Salisbury Center, Herkimer Co. Their daughter Louisa, b. 1815, Salisbury Center, removed to MI ca. 1860 and d. 1873 at Kalamazoo, MI. Louisa's husband was Artemas A. WHITE, b. 1813 ??; d. 1898, Kalamazoo, MI. Their children, surname WHITE, were all born in Salisbury, Herkimer County:
Kathy "especially seeks birth location/ parents of Artemas. Artemas & Louisa Lamphere White were my paternal gg-grandparents via daughter Nancy. "
The transcript of the Curtis Cemetery was contributed to the Herkimer/Montgomery Counties NYGenWeb by John A. Kingsley. Thanks to John's efforts we have a stack of Salisbury cemeteries for presentation on our site this spring. Last fall John sent us a letter written by his distant uncle, George H. Bloodough of the 97th NY volunteers. George is buried in the Curtis Cemetery.
If your ancestors are on this list, please request a search from the Herkimer County Historical Society as neither Kathy nor myself have any information on those buried in this cemetery. John has information about the Bloodoughs.
