Cemetery History

The land for rural South Jordan Cemetery was donated by James Oliver, an early settler. Two month old John A. Bills, who died on September 9, 1863, was the first person placed to rest in the cemetery. The South Jordan Ward maintained the cemetery until ownership was turned over to the City on October 1, 1945. In 1960, Royal Beckstead sold two and a half acres of land to the City to extend the cemetery to the north.

A Veteran’s Memorial, dedicated to the men and women interred in the cemetery, who have served our country in the military is located at the front of the cemetery. Names are added to the monument annually around Memorial Day.

A special monument memorializing the victims of the 1938 school bus/train accident is also located near the entrance of the Cemetery. The monument was installed at Heritage Park on the 75th anniversary of the accident, and was later moved to the cemetery to maintain the reverence and dignity of the memorial.

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.
