Following is a list of surnames of persons listed as persons of Canadian birth who are buried in North Watertown Cemetery, Watertown, Jefferson County, New York. The cemetery has records for about 20,000 burials, about 1/3 of which are unmarked. The listing was made from transcriptions of the cemetery card file. The transcription was completed in 1997. Of the 20,000 names transcribed, about 1600 are listed as being Canadian by birth.

There was a considerable migration of Canadians to the Watertown area in the first decade of the Twentieth Century, but there are others who arrived both before and after that date who have been buried here. Some records are more complete than others, but in addition to name and date of death, many contain birth place and date, spouse, parents, children, and siblings, place of death, residence address, cause of death, undertaker, etc.


If you find a name you are researching in the list
and would like more information,
please e-mail me at
and I will lookup and send you more complete information.
