Vanmarter Cemetery is located on Rt. 14, 3 miles North of Lyons, east side of the road, just past the intersection of Rt. 14 & Klipple Rd. This list was donated by the Wayne County Historian's Office; no reader's name on the pages. Also, no Vanmarters on the list, so it was probably named after a property owner. The list was updated in 1961 with extra notes and burials. Unfortunately, we have no further information on this cemetery or the individuals buried therein.

January 5, 1999 update on Yorks and Dennis's following full listing.
