CHURCH STREET CEMETERY
Little Falls, N.Y.
June 1998 and September 2000
Gravestone of Parley Eaton
The Church Street Cemetery is located between Church and Monroe Streets, adjacent to Arthur Street in Little Falls. Three open gates from each of the adjacent roads provide access. On the upper level a single dirt road runs between the gate on Arthur Street and the one on Church Street. It is an attractive cemetery and is easy to walk in it. There are some unreadable stones, but many more are in very good condition.
In June 1998, my husband and I traveled to Herkimer County to search for information about his ancestors. While at the HCHS we noted that Parley and Phila Eaton, his GGG grandparents, were buried in the Church Street Cemetery. While driving around Little Falls, we found the cemetery and proceeded to look for the grave. No such luck! But we did find other kin and wrote down the information.
We were leaving the next morning and the town offices on E. Main St. already were closed, so we knew we'd have to make another trip someday. In the interim, attempts to obtain a cemetery list proved futile. Just before our return trip this September (2000), a fellow researcher had obtained the lot number from the Town Clerk's office. After another unsuccessful attempt to locate the grave on our own the evening of our arrival (though we wrote down some other names), we headed to the Town Clerk's office first thing in the morning and found the location on their map. And finally SUCCESS!
In the absence of a complete cemetery list and on the chance that someone might be interested in any of these names, I offered them to Martha and she suggested that then others also might send in names that they had found at the Church Street Cemetery, Little Falls.
