Note on Interment Records: There are gaps in what can be learned from the City Cemetery Interment Books. The Interment Books did not record removals from the City Cemetery nor the re-burials from family graveyards to the City Cemetery. And some interments were not listed in the Interment Books, especially during times of epidemics when there were many daily burials. Other sources, such as church funeral registers, family Bible records and obituaries can be helpful.
