Jacksonville.com: Metro: Story: Graveyards help unearth city's history - 0 views

  • With just a few hundred people, family plots and churchyards were more the norm for burials until the mid-1800s, said Shannon Palmer, director of the Cemetery Recovery and Preservation Trust of Jacksonville, a nonprofit organization that works to preserve and catalog historic cemeteries in Jacksonville.

    Old City Cemetery on East Union Street was created in 1852. Evergreen Cemetery, which also had designated plots for various "ethnic and heritage groups," conducted its first burial in 1881.

    The first cemeteries, such as Old City and Evergreen, were all-inclusive but rigidly separated inside. A century later, it's hard for the untrained eye to tell who's who.

    In the early decades of the 20th century, cemeteries grew, in a way, more segregated. The African-American community sought to open its own cemeteries instead of being relegated to the black-only sections of white cemeteries. That led to the creation of cemeteries such as Sunset Memorial, established along with two others by a now-defunct company.

    Most of Jacksonville's more than 120 cemeteries have been abandoned or fallen into disrepair, with no one to protect and preserve them, Palmer said.

    "It's sad," she said: Historic cemeteries have much to tell the city about its past.

Cemeteries of Gallia County: Addison - Harrison - 0 views

  •  
    The cemeteries of Gallia County were censused between 1976 and 1983 by a group of volunteers chaired by Mary James. At that time Mary consulted many resources which led to the discovery of over 500 cemeteries in Gallia County. The Ohio Genealogical Society cemetery project chair has told us that so far Gallia County has reported more cemeteries than any other county in Ohio .

    Cemeteries Photographed by - Allen Wheatley
    I started photographing just my relatives in their cemeteries but found I needed to go back often to get newly found cousins. So I switched to getting complete cemeteries. Now I rarely go to a cemetery because of relatives therein, I just enjoy getting all the pictures and sharing with you. Please copy any for your personal records but since you do not own them, please note that they came from http://teafor2.com if you republish them.

    NAMES IN STONE is a unique online repository designed to help researchers find and document cemetery records AND maps. Maps that show each grave's location allows the visitor to visualize families, and fill in the missing pieces to the family puzzle-much like our friend did on his visit to the two little cemeteries in Alabama.

    We encourage you to contribute to NAMES IN STONE by inviting your local cemetery to participate, by using the on-line mapping tools to add smaller cemeteries, and by sharing photos and other information with the online community.

Indiana Pioneer Cemeteries Restoration Project (INPCRP) - 0 views

  •  
    The state of Indiana is home to thousands of abandoned or neglected pioneer cemeteries, the oldest of which now approach 200 years. The goal of this project is to identify, protect, restore and preserve as many of these cemeteries as possible. This project was founded on the belief that we owe our pioneer ancestors a better monument than a forgotten grave amid bramble and thicket.
