Every so often we come across a real “gem” in our research. My husband came upon the Vernon (NY) Village Cemetery (aka Cooper Cemetery) site when he was doing research on a friend’s family line. This cemetery of over 1,100 burials has a photo of almost every stone and when available, the obit is included – see below for the obit on Lena Blaskett next to a photo of her stone. We can’t thank Bea Lastowicka enough for her dedication and hard work. The link will take you to the www.Findagrave.com website of the Vernon Village Cemetery.
