Ralls County Cemetery Listing

This list was generated to locate cemeteries for the Mark Twain High School art class making a map for display at the Ralls County Courthouse in March/April 2001. Their project will also include churches and schools.  A list of both churches and schools has been made, but the schools are list by school district numbers.  These lists will be used by the Ralls County Historical Society to help locate cemeteries, churches and schools for the inquires we are receiving for information on such locations in Ralls County.

The first 138 cemeteries are listed in alphabetical order with permanent numbers. This is done to limit changes in numbering as newly located cemeteries are added. The cemeteries after 138 will be listed as they are found with a permanent number, also to limit numbering changes.  At the end of the numbered cemeteries are other names that some of the cemeteries may be known as. This list will be alphabetized and will show the name that cemetery can be found on the list.

      This is project in progress and cemeteries will be added as sources are found. There are many maps, books, genealogies, people and other sources that could add to this list and we would be grateful for any input. Also information on churches and schools would helpful.

 All most all of these cemeteries have been canvassed or recorded. We would like to see an effort to centralize all this information in book form or one large file. 

 

THIS IS A ROUGH DRAFT THAT I’M SENDING OUT TO SOME INTERESTED PARTIES FOR INPUT. A LATER COPY WILL FOLLOW AS INFORMATION COMES IN. PLEASE USE AS YOUR PERSONAL RESEARCH AND FILES UNTIL A BETTER VERSION IS COMPLETE. I’M NOW PUTTING THIS INFORMATION ON A MAP AND WILL LIKELY COME UPON MISTAKES

The number (#) is for identifying the cemetery and is not part of the name.
