Scope and Content

The Brigham City sexton's record is a ledger of information about individuals buried in the Brigham City cemetery. As required by Brigham City ordinance, this information includes the name of the deceased, date and place of birth, parents' names, death date, cause of death, and burial plot identification (Brigham City Ordinances, Utah State Archives, series 3662, Book 1, p. 15).

Arrangement

None.

No arrangement is apparent in the sexton's ledger except that individuals buried in the same plot are grouped together.

Research Note

Nearly all deaths recorded herein occurred between 1880 and 1909.

Related Records

Interment records from Brigham City (Utah). City Sexton, Series 22072, duplicate most of the entries in the sexton's ledger. Interment records were reconstructed after the cemetery office burned in 1963. The sexton's ledger is apparently an original record which survived the fire.

Access Restrictions

The Brigham City sexton's ledger was microfilmed under the direction of Utah State Archives in December 2000 and processed by Rosemary Cundiff in July 2002.
