Washington County, OH Cemetery Index
The WCHS has compiled a cemetery database with
nearly 60,000 burials from around Washington County,
OH. The links below contain a list of
names from that database through various cemetery transcription sources,
including contributions from the Washington County Historical Society and
Washington County Public Library Local History and Genealogy Branch in Marietta.
This index is meant as a starting point in your genealogical research and is
neither complete nor guaranteed accurate. As this list was put together from
cemetery readings, spelling errors and misreading of letters & numbers
due to various factors (weather, lighting, tombstone deterioration, etc.)
occurred. Please check all conceivable spelling variations of your surname
and/or given name. Where transcription errors or omissions are found, please
let us know so they can be corrected.
Additional names, cemeteries and information will be
added and/or corrected as time and resources permit. Please note that not all
cemeteries are listed yet, so please be patient. Likewise, just because a
cemetery is among those listed, it does not guarantee that all tombstones
were read in that cemetery. More recent burials are less likely to be
included and are dependent on the date of the particular cemetery transcription.
Information in these lists include name (alphabetical), birth death year, age
at death, cemetery, township location of cemetery, veteran service, military
unit and additional notes. Because of space limitations, we did not include
exact dates of birth or death. Also, only when their birth date is unknown is
their age at the time of death included when indicated in the transcription
resource. Please read the introduction at the top of each of these index web
pages for additional information and definitions.
IMPORTANT: Most Oak
listings are from burial records from 1860-1920 only; and may not match the
exact year of death. In some cases it is the year of reinternment;
sometimes many years later, particularly when moved from other cemeteries.
