Preserving the Past for the Present


Cemetery / Obituary Collection

0001-0695-a-0We have recorded well over 300 cemeteries in Clay County.  From large cemeteries like White Chapel and Fairview to small family cemeteries and abandoned cemeteries, we try to maintain accurate records of the interred to preserve their memory so that family, friends and researchers can find the information they need.  

Also, developers, governmental agencies, road districts and others rely on our information to help them comply with state law regarding the desecration of cemeteries.

Obituaries are culled from various newspapers weekly to update our obituary file and cemetery index.

We also have records from some funeral homes.
