Cemetery History

The present Cookshire Cemetery was established in 1885, when it was decided that the old burying ground in the center of town should be moved. All of the headstones and remains were removed from this original site and deposited at the present site east of the town.

This included the headstone and remains of Captain John Cook who died in 1819 and for whom the town was named. The cemetery is in very good condition with paved lanes and nearly all stones are legible. It is maintained by the Cookshire Cemetery Association..

Cemetery Records

Records below were transcribed from tombstone inscriptions by Leslie and Angela Nutbrown during a visit to the cemetery in November 2004, then updated again with another visit in 2018 and then supplemented with church records.

    What makes us Different?

    Single-sourced, not crowd-sourced

    Each transcription we publish comes from a single-source, be it the cemetery office, government office, church office, archived document, a tombstone transcriber. Other websites already do an excellent job of crowd-sourcing a single cemetery together. But genealogists also need to see the original records from a single source. That's what we offer.
