Many sincere thanks and appreciation to Mr. Byron Rowlee, who compiled and recorded this cemetery, for making this list available online to us.  Mr. Rowlee tells me:

"I was town historian for several years before retiring, and was also the town clerk of Volney, which gave me access to records that most people are not subject to review and consequently there is extra information, as well as having access to my grandfather's diaries that were kept for nearly 40 years, and that also gave extra information.  I have always been willing to share my information and try to answer all inquires as far as possible as one never knows what someone out there might be able to share with you and shed light on the local history."  
Sincerly, Byron Rowlee Sr.      

*Note:  Mr. Rowlee has spent many years of work and much time visiting all of the cemeteries in the town, as well as reviewing the records for a good many of the cemeteries.  They contain much information that usually is not found on cemetery lists and he provides detailed resources for further research.  He certainly deserves the recognition for all his time and hard work.  Byron died in 2008.

Many thanks also to Dianne Thomas, who transcribed this list, a frequent volunteer and Town Editor of Volney, who luckily, likes long and detailed projects.  Dianne also volunteers her time transcribing for several other NY county websites, and enjoys being involved in genealogy, having her own family genealogy with lines back to the 1400's.  

For further information on any of the names, please contact the local
Historical Societies / Town Historians.
