Scope and Content

Marysvale cemetery records begin with lists of information copied from headstones in the old section of the Marysvale Cemetery and from the Howes and Thompsonville Cemeteries. A map of the Dennis Cemetery identifies the names of persons buried therein. These lists and map are followed by a death registry which provides: name of deceased, date of death, place of death, birth date and place or age at time of death, parents' names and place of birth, informant, burial date and place, and possibly other information such as occupation or name of spouse. For those persons buried in the Marysvale Cemetery, the registry also indicates a burial plot number. This registry includes many individuals who were buried in other cemeteries. The registry is followed by several plat maps of the Marysvale Cemetery.

Arrangement

Alphabetical for early cemeteries; thereafter registry is chronological by date of death.

Research Note

Marysvale cemetery records were compiled by local residents, Laura M. Tate Bertelsen and Lucile Barlow. No new information has been added since 1978. The book also includes newspaper articles about the Marysvale railroad depot.
