Walker Cemetery
Hamlin, New York


The following article describing this cemetery was inthe Brockport Republic in 1890.

Sometime ago in giving a list of the cemeteries established at an early date in the town of Clarkson, years before the town was divided, no mention was made of the cemetery established at Kane's Corners, now East Hamlin [also called Walker]. There is a small cemetery, including only about half an acre of land. It is shaded by a few pine trees, and the rank growth of golden rod, milk weed and grass indicates that the soil of that locality is very fertile. The trees have so blackened some of the headstones that their inscriptions are illegible.

In obtaining a list of the principal persons buried in this cemetery, as shown by the inscriptions, the earliest burial found was that of Florilla, wife of Joshua Ryder, who died Mar. 31, 1844. There were perhaps earlier interments under the hillocks having no memorial stones.

This is a composite list of burials extracted from:

  1. a list published in the Brockport Republic in 1890;
  2. a July 1928 survey compiled by D.A.R. member, Mary T. Douglas;
  3. a May 1939 survey compiled by D.A.R. members, Lula Smith and Myrte Rice Haynes;
  4. a survey by Hamlin Historical Society members, Peg Ryan, Linda Ryan & Nancy Martin in 1972;
  5. a survey compiled by Marjorie S. Dows on July 16, 1978.
