The reading of the Herkimer Dutch Reformed Church Cemetery was made by Edith Batsford Swancott, Corinne Wheeler Watkins and Elizabeth Atwater Mairs Merritt of the Oneida Chapter of the N.S.D.A.R., Utica, NY in the 1920s and dated July 7, 1927. A comparison of this cemetery with the Oak Hill Cemetery, taken by Mrs. M.M. Hatch and dated November 1926, shows another group of interments of people of the Harter surname. Oak Hill Cemetery was said to be situated one half mile west of Herkimer on the state road to Utica, on the north side of the road.
IMPORTANT: William Arthur, of the Herkimer County Historical Society, states that this info should be prefaced with a disclaimer. Only the grave stones up to a certain year were surveyed. So there are many others there unlisted. Also, some burials were done without markers, but the names are listed in the cemetery book. Also some markers were lost or are unreadable. This is true of all cemeteries listed on this site. So if a person doesn't see who they are seeking listed, it doesn't mean they are not there. Further investigation should be made at the Herkimer County Historical Society or by actually visiting the cemetery in person.

As is common with such an old and well-documented cemetery, not everyone had a stone or had their stone survive.
According to Stanley Shaut, the book "The Mohawk Valley Herkimer and Allied Families" by Hazel Patrick, Jane Spellman, and William Watkins notes on page 3 that:
"6 Delia Herkimer m. Jan 1750 Peter Bellinger (MVB71) b. Mar 1726 d. 26 Mar 1813 ae 87, a widower (H1-267). His will was signed 1-26-1811. Probated 3-29-1813 & recorded HCSW-B 276 File 00222. Col. Peter died at his home on Fall Hill. He and Delia are buried at the Northwest side of the original main door of the Fort Herkimer Church, which at the time faced the Mohawk River".
From Jane Dieffenbacher, Fairfield Town Historian: Wm. Arthur, who is in charge of Oak Hill Cemetery in Herkimer relays this info. to you. The list of graves that has been posted is incomplete. In the first place, the man who did the list left off at a certain date, so all the later ones are not included. Also, some people were buried with no markers, or their stones are unreadable, or the stones have fallen or broken. So if someone is looking for a specific person, they might not find him on the list. This warning is true for most of the cemeteries you have from Herkimer County. The lists are not complete. (Note: All of our cemetery listings are only "good" up through the date that they were read, which we try to note if we have that information for the list. The validity of readings is also subject to the interpretation of the reader and the conditions of the stones.)
