Series 30040Huntington (Utah) Cemetery interment records
These records are housed in the Utah State Archives' permanent storage room.
Scope and Content
This series contains two volumes recording information about people buried in the Huntington city cemetery. Each register is arranged chronologically by date of death or interment. The register dating from 1880 through 1967 documents such information as the name of the sexton, name of the deceased, date of birth, place of birth, names of father and mother, marital status, date of death, place of death, cause of death, physician or nurse in attendance, location of grave, kind of casket, construction of vault, complexion , physical deformities or scars, occupation, date of inquest (if applicable), name of coroner, as well as the religion, habits, and reputation within the community. The latter category was most often used to note the religion of the deceased (usually Latter-day Saint), or, if not LDS, other religion, their social standing, and/or whether or not they were a child, infant, or stillborn. The record dating from 1968 to 2004 contains slightly different information, including the name of the deceased, place of birth, late residence, age, sex, social state (usually marital status), cause of death, date and place of interment, location of plot, name of undertaker, the name of the nearest relative or friend (as well as the relation), as well as a column for remarks, which usually contains more names. These volumes were kept by the sexton to track who was buried where and when in the Huntington city cemetery.
