Scope and Content

Inasmuch as the town of Junction had kept no records relating to community cemeteries, Ms. Dortha B. Davenport took the initiative to reconstruct and compile a cemetery record for the community. In compiling this record Ms. Davenport obtained information from obituaries, LDS Church records, her personal journal, communication with relatives, and the inscriptions on headstones in Junction's several cemeteries. For each individual this record potentially provides the following information: name of deceased, gender, date and place of birth, parents' names, spouse's names, date and place of death, and cause of death. Ms. Davenport's compilation includes information about individuals buried in the Hill Cemetery (currently in use) as well as for the City Creek, Field, and Howes Cemeteries. Her record includes brief histories of abandoned cemeteries and maps of the City Creek and Field Cemeteries.
