Scope and Content

This series consists of four different types of records which document burials and plot ownership at the Clinton cemetery. The first set of records are certificates of purchase which include the plot location, the name of the purchaser, and the date of purchase. The second item is a list of owners of each individual plot. The third item is an interment register. The register has columns for the name of the deceased, place of death, date of burial, location of grave, and the name and address of the undertaker. The last set of records are plot cards. Plot cards contain information about the individual buried there: the individuals' names, parents' names, spouses' names, date and place of birth, date and place of death, burial permit number, whether or not there is a perpetual care agreement, the name of the funeral director and the name of the lot owner. Some plot cards contain notations regarding transfers of ownership.
