Huron Cemetery Table – arranged in current municipal groups. Chart includes…date opened (or earliest death on a tombstone) – this info will save you looking for burials from an earlier time.  There may indeed have been an earlier burial, but there is no stone saying so. Some stones are burials earlier than when the cemetery opened – this often happened when stones were moved from another cemetery that was closing.

Are all cemeteries in Huron County transcribed?

The Huron County Branch, Ontario Ancestors (OA) has transcriptions of 116 Huron County Cemeteries.  This was done as part of a larger project of the Ontario Genealogical Society or OA that involved the identification and transcription of all burial grounds in the province.  Hours and hours of volunteer work went into this project, going stone to stone, transcribing all wording on the stones, and seeking stones almost buried.  All work was indexed.  Thankfully, this work was done in the late1980s as many stones have since become unreadable.  All transcriptions are available for download

We transcribed all known stones with names in Huron County in the 1980’s.  Much effort was put into finding all cemeteries at that time. 

I can’t find a tombstone!

When the map of 1880 Huron County is examined closely, there are cemeteries noted that no longer exist.  Some we know had bodies and/or tombstones moved to larger cemeteries.  Sadly, some cemeteries were not maintained or were leveled before laws to protect cemeteries existed.  We have heard that some families had small family burial plots on their land.  Few of these are known and/or exist today.  It may even be that a stone was not put up. Even though we have better laws around protection of cemeteries, cemeteries are under threat of developers, theft, vandalism, etc.  Please let us an authority know if you know of problems with existing cemeteries.

Why keep these cemetery transcriptions when there are online cemetery resources now to find tombstones?

These transcriptions were done in the 1980s.  Sadly, there are old stones transcribed in those years that are no longer legible.  This record may be the only source of an older burial for your family. 

Transcribers were asked to record all wording on the stones.  Although as genealogists, we often focus on the dates provided, it was in the small print it might mention place of origin (i.e. native of Fermanagh, Ireland).  Sometimes this is the only clue of county in another country.

The “maker” of the stone is usually mentioned.  This is a clue to where the family might have had ties.  For instance, it is worth checking why a family in Huron had the tombstone shipped from Hamilton.  There could be many reasons. The verses put on stones cost more money.  They were obviously important to the grieving families to put on the stone.  They would have been chosen with care. 

Will transcriptions be updated?

We have decided not to do updates at this point. We feel the photography of the newer stones and the online cemetery pages provide the genealogist with good data. We encourage all to participate with photographing Huron County Cemeteries to add to the Canadian Headstones and Find A Grave and other sites.
