SERIES: 28290
TITLE: Cemetery interment records
DATES: 1851-
ARRANGEMENT: Alphabetical and chronological.

DESCRIPTION: This series contain several volumes used to record burials in the Springville City and Evergreen Cemeteries. The earliest book was begun in 1879 and records burials as early as 1851. Burials were listed alphabetically by family name in one section and listed chronologically in another section. The book also includes an early cemetery map, information about plot ownership, and "promiscuous" information on the burial of strangers and unknown individuals.

The second volume is arranged in alphabetical sections and repeats information from the earlier volume, with additional burials listed through 1947. The third volume is in reverse chronological order and overlaps with earlier and later volumes. The fourth and fifth books ostensibly cover the City and Evergreen Cemeteries, respectively, but there is some cross-over in the two books. They are arranged chronologically and overlap earlier and later volumes. The most recent book picks up from the two preceding volumes and contains information on burials in both cemeteries, listed chronologically. The burial records in this series typically include such information as the name of the deceased, date and place of birth, date and place of death, cause of death, names of parents, last place of residence, burial date, and location of grave.
