Cemeteries of Marshall County


Information about the Marshall County Cemeteries has been gleaned from resources in the Marshall County Historical Museum library including: 1872 Plat Maps, 1876 Indiana Atlas, 1880 McDonald's History (reprint), 1908 Marshall County Atlas, 1922 Marshall County Atlas, Cemetery Files, 1979 Survey of Cemeteries by Mary Durnan, Marshall Co. Cemeteries, Vol. 1 & 2 by Tombaugh, North Twp. Cemetery Findings 1995 by Martha Hollett. Some of the very old cemeteries and private family burial plots may have been missed or the exact location misidentified. Anyone with further information about the cemeteries of Marshall County is invited to contact the museum staff. Documentation that would help complete the history of our early cemeteries would be most appreciated. Information concerning the locations of unmarked graves would also be most helpful to researchers. Thank you. Judy McCollough, Historical Archives Manager, Marshall County Historical Museum.
