Lone Mountain/Laurel Hill Cemetery Records
The Lone Mountain/Laurel Hill Burial Records were kept chronologically in ledgers. The ledgers are indexed. Unfortunately, you cannot scroll through the ledgers at this time.
The index is arranged alphabetically by last name. The original ledgers and index are bound separately (and, therefore, have been digitized separately). You can access and search either or both:
To search by date, begin with the ledgers
To search by name, begin with the index. The index will direct you to a ledger (by volume and page number) where the detailed burial record is entered.
