Herkimer County, New York Cemeteries
Herkimer County is located in the state of New York. It was created in 1791 north of the Mohawk River out of part of Montgomery County. It is named after General Nicholas Herkimer, who died from battle wounds in 1777 after taking part in the Battle of Oriskany during the Revolutionary War. Its county seat is the Village of Herkimer.
In 1791, Herkimer County was created as one of three counties split off from Montgomery as New York State was developed after the American Revolutionary War. Its area was much larger than the present county, however, and was reduced subsequently as more counties were organized.
Herkimer County is in central New York State, northwest of Albany, and east of Syracuse. The northern part of the county is in the Adirondack Park. The Mohawk River flows across the south part of the county.
Herkimer County is known for producing unusual clear, doubly terminated quartz crystals, marketed as Herkimer diamonds.
