Cemetery History

DeKalb County Cemetery was established in 1881 as a burying ground for indigent, transient or otherwise unknown persons who didn't have anyone else to claim their bodies.

It was located on former County Farm property, and at one time there was a County Home where impoverished persons and the sick could stay and be cared for. The County Home was torn down many years ago.

Today, it's now a part of County Farm Woods, a nature preserve with hiking and biking trails. The cemetery also shares space with a shopping center and parking lot.

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.
