CEMETERIES – Part I

CEMETERIES – Part I

It is unknown exactly how many cemeteries are located within the borders of Ohio County.  The local historical organizations have researched this question for many years and have published books with extensive information. Also, volunteers are currently hard at work cleaning up long forgotten cemeteries. Another good source of information is Findagrave.com, which is a volunteer-driven web site, with some maps, marker photos, and other detailed information. If you are not familiar with Findagrave, it is a wonderful research source, and I encourage you to add your information to the Findagrave site – which is easy to do. As I write this, Findagrave has 337 cemeteries listed for Ohio County. Here is part of the list (the first 40 of 337):
