Scope and Content

The Paragonah sexton created burial permits granting permission for persons to be buried in the Paragonah Cemetery. In addition to the name of the person to be buried, each permit also indicates his or her age, date and place of death, place of birth, and sometimes the cause of death. In each case the sexton's signature verifies that the individual was buried in the Paragonah Cemetery. At the end of this book the sexton created a list of all individuals who own cemetery lots. The list identifies the owner's name, the lot number, and date payment was made.

Arrangement

Chronological by date of permit.
