Hello introduction to Exploring NY Cemeteries

Welcome to Exploring NY Cemeteries. One of my favorite past times is wandering through local cemeteries and I would like to share some photos I've taken as well as some of the history that I have found. Come along and explore with me.
To start off I'm honoring Veterans for Memorial Day with photos and any information that I may have about them.

Willcox Cemetery near Earlville, NY Veterans honored.

 Willcox  Cemetery  located on the back river road between Symrna and Earlville is a small cemetery and well cared for.  It is still an active cemetery.  There are many veterans buried there including many in the McKee Family.   Below are the ones I have photos to honor.

As you will note Burton and Glendora McKee were husband and wife.
Kirk was a locally well known and honored WW I veteran.
Kirk and Stella McKee were lovely people that I knew.  They had many foster children.
