Cemeteries

Many volunteers have worked very hard to provide the researchers 
of Jefferson County a listing of Cemeteries and to provide pictures
of headstones to help you in your personal research.

PLEASE DO NOT TAKE the cemetery listings and pictures 
that others have worked so hard to provide and add it 
to any other website as your own. 

Thank You 
for understanding and respecting 
the work of others.

I found a funeral home metal marker in the cemetery yesterday (06-27-2004) that the 
mower had run over and torn up. The only thing on it is the date 1896 and the name 
J_HNSTONS.
