States: Ohio: Noble
Greg, There are several possibilities for you. One is the Ohio Historical Society (OHS)which is the official keeper of death certificates until 1937. At the moment, I don't recall the earliest year they have. If they have the cert, you can obtain a copy cheap. The cert has the name of the cemetery plus some info of interest to genealogists, parents names, cause of death. The cemetery should have a caretaker who could point out the location of the grave including unmarked ones. Ancestry has a set of Ohio Deaths databases that cover 1958-1998. You might also contact the Noble County Probate Court. They should be able to give you some info. If you give me names for your folks who died before 1937, I'll try to look them up on the OHS site. Sometimes you can luck out and get useful info from the Social Security Death Index but that is a bit tricky and is limited to people who died after Social Security started in 1955.
Good Hunting, Phil
