Preserving the Past for the Present


Cemetery / Obituary Records

Project Coordinator:  Ken Neth

We are actively updating our Cemetery files and index.  We find quite a few previously unknown cemeteries each year.  There are well over 300 cemeteries in Clay County.

We continually scour newspapers, both historical and current, collecting obituaries to index all deaths occuring in Clay County.  We have a physical file of all obituaries as well as a Cemetery Index that records pertinent information for research.
