St. Elizabeth's Cemetery

Elizabethtown, Essex County, New York
St. Elizabeth's Catholic Cemetery is located behind St. Elizabeth's Church on Route 9 (south end) in the village of Elizabethtown, NY.

This cemetery is relatively new compared to most of the other local cemeteries in the area with the earliest death noted in 1933. Interestingly, all memorial stones are the same size and flat to the ground. Obviously all flowers must be set on the memorial stones and not on the grass.

Though there are currently 39 Veterans buried in this cemetery, it is noted that there are only two American Legion markers and flags present at the time of this writing. A list of the Veterans is included with this information.

There are about 275 memorial stones at this writing, so the cemetery is small enough to locate a particular stone. Thus the listing is done alphabetically, not by blocks as the larger cemeteries I have gleaned information from. Although the names are listed alphabetically, I have indexed all the names including maiden names.

This cemetery information was gathered by this writer in June 2008 and submitted to the Northern New York Tombstone Transcription Project, Rootsweb at

Although I have proof read this information several times, I will apologize for any typographical mistakes that may have occurred.
