THE YATES COUNTY CEMETERY PROJECT
The project includes all known and purported burials in the
County's active, abandoned and "lost" cemeteries: nearly 40,000
individuals listed in five individually indexed volumes, plus a master
index to all in the sixth volume.
Each cemetery is shown with a map and notes on its history, condition
and access, followed by a list of persons buried there. Information on
individual burials includes names and dates from all remaining
gravestones, plus maiden names and other genealogical information when
known. Sources used include a complete and accurate reading of all
remaining grave markers, local histories, town and village records,
census mortality schedules, earlier gravestone readings and other
available records. This is the first accurate and complete listing of
all the county's cemetery burials, eight years in the making.
