Troy Burial Records

A big thank-you to John Ryan for transcribing these records and contributing them to this website. The source of these records is "Book of Records, Names Interments &c. &c., Troy, March 1st 1833, S. E. Gibbs Superintendent". In the LDS Church Family History Library Catalog, they are called "Burial records, 1833-1928, of Mt. Ida Cemetery", but this name is misleading, because in later years, these records contain MANY burials in other cemeteries, such as Saint Mary's, Saint Joseph's and other Catholic cemeteries. In the earliest years, including 1835, the burials WERE all in Mount Ida Cemetery, hence the name. So the cemetery column has been left blank for the 1835 records on this web page, and Mount Ida Cemetery is implied. The records John has transcribed here are from FHL film Number 1434103.

SEARCH TIPS: You can use your browser's "Find (on This Page)" tool, which for most of you can be found on the "Edit" drop-down menu. However, you might also want to read through the entire list, because in my experience, these records are full of information that I didn't expect to find there! Also, John has [quite rightly] transcribed these records verbatim; if the original said "Jno", he transcribed "Jno", so if you use "John" as your search value, your search tool will not find an entry that says "Jno". Therefore, you will need to search again using the search value "Jno". ENJOY!
