Recently I was having a difficult time obtaining information for the Evergreen Cemetery in Jefferson, Schoharie County, New York. I was able to obtain some information today and have gotten permission to post it where it is needed. Please find the following information and permission given to me by the Superintendent of the Evergreen Cemetery, Mr. Charles (Chuck) Jochem. I hope it will be useful to others as well.

Mr. Charles (Chuck) Jochem - He cares for the Cemetery and all the burial records of the cemetery from his home office, not too far from the cemetery itself. Please free feel to call or write to him at any time for Cemetery questions and he is more than willing to meet anyone at the cemetery and bring them to graves if they give him a call at the number listed below. Chuck has a burial Index card file in his home office to help provide Section, Lot & Grave numbers for those interested in such information. He was very helpful and kind to me.

Evergreen Cemetery is located on Peck Road in Jefferson, Schoharie County, New York. It is a Privately owned cemetery, with a board of trustees and is regulated by the Sate of New York. A fairly small cemetery with 7 acres of land and is divided into 3 Sections for burials. It currently still is an active Cemetery, meaning that burial's still are taking place to date. There is no map of the cemetery and no website online. It is open from May to Nov. from dawn to dusk 7 days a week. Closed from Nov. through May, as they do not plow the cemetery in the winter months and no burial's take place until May.

Listings on this page are not necessarily complete and may not represent all of the stones in this cemetery. Please send additional submissions and corrections to Doug Boyer

Note 3

Amos Gallup Plot:

     Amos Gallup, b Feb 26, 1818, d July 3, 1883  
     Lemira A. Fuller, wife of Amos Gallup, b. Sept 8, 1818, d Sept 13, 1851, aged 33 years & 5 days 
     Eliza Dingman, wife of Amos Gallup, b. May 11, 1823  

Amos Gallup and Eliza Dingman, his second wife, were my great grandparents. While Eliza's death was not carved onto the big marker, and a small marker was not laid for her, I have her death certificate which tells us that her remains were indeed sent to be buried in Evergreen Cem. Most probably in the blank spot beside the big marker. Eliza died 24 Oct 1902 in Binghamton.
The first wife of Amos was Lemira A. Fuller. Amos and Lemira began a different line of Gallups which is quite extensive down to the family of Glenn Gallup the 3rd who is living in California, and with whom I am in frequent contact.

I have Eliza traced back to the beginning of time but I have been at a blank wall with Lemira for over five years now. Walter Ruland, Jefferson Town Historian has not been able to help me either. If you ever come upon ANYTHING about Lemira A. Fuller I would be indebted to you for letting me know.
