Brewer Road (aka Parke Family) Cemetery

This is a small family cemetery on the west side of Brewer Road in the Town of Camden. This was originally part of the Daniel Parke farm and many of his family are buried here. It has been used as a burial ground since 1820. Several bodies from the Blakeslee Road Cemetery were re-interred here when that cemetery was abandoned.

The cemetery is well maintained and the tombstones are in good condition but there were a few that were worn. The tombstones were copied by Kathleen Last and Virginia Ackerman on May 9, 2000.

In 2004 a local organization of volunteers adopted a proposal to preserve and beautify the abandoned half-acre cemetery. In June 2006 the cemetery was rededicated as the Parke Cemetery. The two-year cemetery project included minimal fencing and stone corner markers built by the Boy Scouts, lilacs and pussywillow trees to mark lateral boundaries, a landscaped memorial monument proved by Ages Together, a handmade sign, two benches permanently installed, and repairs and straightening of old tombstones. The project was supported by the community with a variey of materials and labor, as well as funds contributed by the town, area veterans’ organizations, and individuals.



Photos of many of the tombstones in the cemetery can be seen at the New York Tombstone Transcription Project website.
