Jefferson County Patriot Burials
List compiled by Bruce Coyne
This table is part of the Northern New York Sons of the American Revolution/ Daughters of the American Revolution Joint Patriot Project or NNYSARDARJPP. Our purpose is to mark Patriot burials in Jefferson and St. Lawrence counties, NY. The participating groups are the LeRay de Chaumont Chapter, NSDAR, Nihanawate Chapter, NSDAR, Swe-kat-si Chapter, NSDAR and Thousand Islands Chapter, SAR.
It is my current, 5 November 2018, list of Patriot burials in Jefferson county, New York, totaling 363. Northern New York Genealogy also has an excellent list. A very comprehensive list of burials in St. Lawrence county appears on the blog. The project blog contains grave stone photos and other information about Patriot burials in Jefferson and St. Lawrence counties. The marking in St. Lawrence is finished and Jefferson should be next year. As more grave are marked, they will be posted to the blog.
