Cemetery List by Township

This list was compiled from GNIS Government location maps and Henry County Genealogical Society publications. Town names next to to the GNIS map coordinates are the names of the large maps they appear on and not necessarily the town the cemetery is located in.

Lookup volunteers are available for some publications. Please see the LOOKUPS page and follow the instructions there to request help. Limit your lookup request to one or two listings and be sure to list cemetery name and county in your request, as some people do lookups for more than one area.

Please purchase any book in which you think you will need more than one or two persons looked up. The Henry County Genealogical Society relies on the sales of these books in order to be able to produce more books. HCGS is very good about allowing us to do lookups from their books, but they do need to sell the books to survive and our volunteers really can't do all your research for you.

At the end of this list are notes we have received about burial sites we either cannot name or locate. Take a look at them and see if you recognize any of those as well.
