HISTORY: Established by the local lodge of the Improved Order of Redmen (I.O.R.M), a popular fraternal organization of that era with roots extending back to the Revolutionary War. The Redman Lodge closed in 1933 at which time local volunteers took over maintenance of the cemetery. In 2008 interment services offered to those with family buried there or who cannot afford to be buried elsewhere.

OWNER: The Redmen Lodge

SEXTON RECORDS: Patrick McLarney and Felix J McLarney (Jack)

MAP: An overall map of the cemetery available in the JCGS Library.

COMPILERS: This project could not be completed without the help of many people.

 SOURCE OF INFORMATION: JCGS members compiled an index for the cemetery. This information came from a combination of walking the cemetery and funeral home records.

  • The cemetery was walked, making note of those with markers and any information contained on the markers was entered in the report.
  • The current report combines all the work done in 1985 and 2008.
  • The Sexton Book contains detailed information included in the list. The source for this information is unknown. A copy is held by Jefferson County Historical Society in their collection.

As is true with all compiled records, errors may have occurred. It is suggested that you verify the information.

PHOTOGRAPHS AVAILABLE: If the listing indicates “Photo” this means a photograph of the gravemarker is available AT NOT COST. Contact JCGS and a digital copy will be sent to you via email.
