JEFFERSON COUNTY CEMETERY INSCRIPTIONS
BY THE GRAVESTONE SCRIBES
Through the generosity of A.E. Rogers, who recorded the inscriptions, his daughter Ellen Bartlett, who researched them, and Ellen's husband John, who did the rest, we are very proud to present the Bartlett Cemetery Inscriptions. This began as a labor of love on the part of Mr. Rogers, who started out to record one cemetery in the Town of Clayton, and ended up spending his summers on his hands and knees in cemetery after cemetery, recording names, resurrecting fallen stones, and unearthing forgotten cemeteries all over Jefferson County. For many of us, researching Jefferson County family history, the Bartlett books of epitaph inscription have been the first book to reach for. This is still a work in progress.
Note: For those who wish a hard copy, you may contact the authors. For e-mail access to them click here.
Mrs. Bartlett took the names her father found, and added information from obituaries and other sources. Families have been assembled through her efforts, and the combined work has proven invaluable to Jefferson County researchers. From the time this GenWeb went on the internet, Gus, Ellen and John have acted as lookups from their huge data base, fielding up to 30 queries a week over the years. They are now ready to have you look up your own names on this site.
