1871 Cemeteries Of The 12 Townships of Jefferson County
USGenWeb

This listing of Cemeteries of Jefferson County comes from the information transcribed by Dorothy Rathbun from an 1871 Jefferson County map provided by Janet Roberts.  A notebook with an Atlas of these maps showing these cemeteries has been prepared by and is available from the Jefferson County Genealogical Society.

Names are listed alphabetically and showing the township and the section of the township in which the cemetery was located.  The names of the cemeteries were not listed on the map but were added to the information from other sources.  The map only notes a "cemetery."  This listing of the cemeteries primarily provides only those in the rural areas.  Cemeteries in the towns may not be listed here.
