FAMILIES BURIED IN MOHAWK CEMETERY
We always welcome further info about the families buried in the cemeteries we list on the site.
The first researcher to send in an item about people buried in Mohawk Cemetery is Jillean Austin, who contributes a short file about the Edicks and Gleeds of Mohawk, NY. These two families married descendants of other early Mohawk Valley families, whose surnames frequently appear on our site.
