Some Family Names
When we receive correspondence from someone requesting information on a family represented at Erie Cemetery, we try to share as much information as possible. Usually we are able to compile a list of people buried in Erie Cemetery with a certain surname. Following are some of the lists of burials for surnames requested via the internet.
THIS IS NOT A COMPLETE LIST OF BURIALS AT ERIE CEMETERY. That document is available at Erie Village Hall or Erie Public Library. This list is an attempt to share with the public information already given in response to individual inquiries.
