To start, there is or was a St. Patrick’s Catholic Church in Newport, New York at the Irish Settlement. The cemetery is referred to as Old St. Patrick’s Cemetery. Before the church was there, the Catholics in the area went to St. John’s Church, Utica, New York. There’s a cemetery there too. Some of my relatives were involved in starting St. Patrick’s Church in Newport in 1834. I also see St. Mary’s in Little Falls, NY, indicated. Here’s a link to the history of the two parishes written by one of my McLaughlin relatives: http://herkimer.nygenweb.net/newport/stpatrick.html.
I have a few relatives buried in the Irish Settlement, Town of Newport, Cemetery at Old St. Patrick’s. Here’s link to apparently everyone who is buried there: http://herkimer.nygenweb.net/cemeteries/irishcem.html. I LOVE that someone put this online.
Here’s a link to the Town of Newport’s site online: http://herkimer.nygenweb.net/newport.html – This page links to pretty much everything. I’ve listed individual links above to other pages off this main one since sometimes the links error out. If you go directly to the page, it works for whatever reason. From this page you can find lists of everyone buried in the Newport Cemetery and the St. John’s Cemetery. This is pretty cool although I have found some of the information is incomplete. I have found several of my McLaughlin’s and Maxwell’s buried at St. John’s.
The other site that I’ve reviewed is http://herkimer.nygenweb.net/. This site may be redundant.
I’ve had a hard time getting back to this site but the link still works: http://montgomery.nygenweb.net/herksursE.html. The bottom of the page has links to all of the surname page ranges by last name for Herkimer and Montgomery Counties.
I thought I'd post this while it was still fresh in my mind.
