SMALL FAMILY CEMETERIES
Town of St. Johnsville
Montgomery County, NY
The readings of these small St. Johnsville family cemeteries were done by an unknown reader, probably in the late 1920s. Notations indicate dedication of the Youker Memorial in 1927 so they were read at least by that date. We'd appreciate any further information about these cemeteries, their locations, and the individuals buried in them. Kathleen McLaughlin of the Nellis Family Association has added notes about the small Klock Cemetery of St. Johnsville. The lists were typed and contributed to us by Sandy Burns.

|YOUKER MEMORIAL - TOWN OF ST. JOHNSVILLE, MONTGOMERY COUNTY|
On Fayette Groff Farm, on Oppenheim-St. Johnsville Highway. Erected in 1927 by the Youker Family at their Sesqui-Centennial.
In commemoration of Rudolf Youker and wife Anna Windlorin, pioneer settlers in Oppenheim 1750, whose burial place is 300 feet south of this marker. Later settlers spent their first night with them and took fire and ___ to their new homes. Three sons, Jacob (prisoner), John and George served in the Revolution. Twenty five decendents served in later wars.
Among the decendents were William Guile in the war of 1812. Nine in the Civil War, and Fifteen in the World War.
Rudolf Youker and wife, and other Youkers are said to be buried in the Groff Cemetary, #5 Town of St. Johnsville, on this same farm, but there are no marker stones.
7/10/2001 In reference to the Youker Family Stone, Robert Youker tells us that:
"There was an entry in a web site for small cemetaries in St Johnsville
asking for information on the Youker Stone at the Goff farm outside of St
Johnsville. If you will check in the Youker books by Sonntag in either
Reaney library, Herkimer Cty Historical Society or Fonda research center you
will find a complete write up of the monument. My father's name of Bliss
Youker is on it."

"The cemetery opposite the Power House contains the bodies of Henry J. (or I.) Klock, son of John J.

Some of this was recorded in the Simeon Klock bible located in Syracuse in private hands ca 1956. This material was found in Helen Laura Klock William's Klock history, version 1956. She states that HJK died in Vernon, Madison Co., NY where their son, Simeon, moved from Oppenheim."
