Summary of Records

This series documents burials in the Spring City Cemetery in the form of a ledger.

Scope and Content

This series documents burials in the Spring City Cemetery in the form of an historic, century-old, handwritten ledger maintained by the sexton. Ledger columns include the name of the deceased, their dates of birth and death, parents' names, the location of the grave, the cause of death, and the name of the doctor or medical attendant at the time of death. Not all columns are completed for all individuals. Cemetery block and lot numbers have been recorded since 1892. Recording individual grave space/site information was sporadic from the mid-1970s until it became standard practice in 1999. A partial list of sextons and their beginning dates of service is written on the inside of the front cover.


Chronological by date of death.
