The site of Jackson-Everson is located on the boundary between St. Johnsville and Palatine, Montgomery County, New York. The site was probably founded by Huron immigrants in 1657, when all the Mohawk villages were still located on the south side of the river. The village remained at the site through the relocation of Mohawk villages to the north side of the river. It was occupied through most of the A.D. 1666-1679 period, but was abandoned by the time Jesuit missionaries and Catholic converts left the valley around 1679. The site has been known for many decades because of the old stone church that stands at the foot of the hill. The site was investigated by Donald Lenig, and he excavated burials in an associated cemetery in the late 1930s. William Starna attempted to define the site through aerial photography in the 1970s. In 1983, graduate students from the University at Albany partially excavated a midden on the village locus. The Nellis site is a second cemetery that is located north of the village, and should be considered a locus of the Jackson-Everson site.
