CEMETERIES OF OTTAWA COUNTY







Thanks to Mr. and Mrs Elmo Miller,  Mr. and Mrs. Darrel Cooper, Mrs. Arliene Matthews,  Mr. and Mrs. Rob Thompson,  The Ottawa County Museum, the cemetery boards and all others who helped make this directory possible.  This is an ongoing project and will be updated when ever we receive more information.




We found that there are five cemeteries with current records in the county.  The rest have different degrees of records,
from very little for some ,  to owners of lots but no other names on the lot for others.
In about 1960 a group of people made a "walk thru" of all the cemeteries and recorded what they found.
Marjorie Miller of Minneapolis has a copy of these and graciously allowed me to use them for this project.
About 1990 Mrs. Miller started collecting obituaries from newspapers and I also used these.
This leaves a 30 year period with out any records for several cemeteries.
If you have any records that will help fill that void I would be very glad to include them.
 




You will find a map of the county with all the cemeteries marked. This is large and must
be scrolled . Under the map is a directory of the county cemeteries with their addresses listed
