Cemetery Records of Cambria and Somerset Counties, PA, Vol. XII

Author: Brian J. Ensley

In genealogical researching, cemetery records are one of the most valuable tools one can use. In some cases, a headstone is the only record that a person even existed. Many families who didn’t have obituaries published and who died when there was no formal death certificates issued, left a headstone inscription that was the only record of their dates.

Over time many headstones become worn, damaged or missing. Since many of the stones were already worn or damaged when this record was started, transcription was sometimes difficult. All attempts were made to be as complete and accurate as possible. Individual cemetery records are listed in alphabetical order.
