It is my belief that most of those who first settled Northfork Town are now buried under the lake. My family (Smith, Yargee) were among the first to settle Northfork Town and I have never been able to find grave sites for any of them. I have heard that only the grave markers were relocated by the Corp of Engineers, not the actual bodies. I can't say if that is true. I know some markers were relocated to Fishertown and Greenlawn, but I haven't had any luck finding graves of family members who were first relocated to I.T. I have heard that my 2x Great Granddad is buried at Artussie Indian Church, but no longer has a marker. My Great Grandparents were buried in the Mellette Cemetery and my Granddad had them moved to what would become the New Mellette Cemetery.
