About the Cemetery

Chester Community Cemetery was established in 1901. The cemetery is in decent shape and has as rural look to it. There is also a hiking trail that runs thru the cemetery. I noticed at least 2 distinct areas. One is by the main cemetery entrance by the sign. There is also a section by the 1 st gate before the sign. There is parking for a couple of cars along the edge of the road. The oldest marked grave was from 1894 and the most recent burial from 2018.

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.
