This work consists of all of the cemetery record articles published in The “Old Northwest” Genealogical Quarterly between 1898 and 1912. It consists primarily of tombstone inscriptions from cemeteries in the following counties: Trumbull, Geauga, Portage, Lorain, Guernsey, Knox, Licking, Delaware, Franklin (including the city of Columbus), Madison, Fairfield, Pickaway, Athens, Vinton, Ross, and Jackson. There also are some burial records and inscriptions from cemeteries in East Haddam, Conn., and Rutland, Mass., which were important departure points for migrations into the “Old Northwest.”
Many of the recorded inscriptions identify not only the age and death date of the deceased, but the names of his parents, spouse, or children. Provided for this work is a full-name index of nearly 20,000 persons identified in the records.
