ABOUT THE CEMETERY FILES

These files, like the census files, are arranged by township. They may be accessed here, or under the township. Again, duplication of records occurs when a man reenlisted, or changed outfits. Mr. Sanderson has assigned a number to each cemetery, and this code appears in the chart.

The files are the exclusive property of Harold I. Sanderson, MA/CAS. Material may be copied for historical research purposes only. Any use of this material in studies, learned historical publications, or books of any kind shall have the permission of the author or after his death permission must be obtained from the agency possessing this historical information.

The cemetery files have a similar arrangement to the census files, with a few important differences. The first column refers to the township; then the cemetery code. The click for the code sheet is given below. Next are Surname, Christian name, Middle initial, Death date, Birth date, and Age at death. Finally, Regiment in which the man served followed by the company designation. The last column specifies whether the man joined the GAR, an organization of veterans of the Grand Army of the Republic.

The following files have cemeteries indicated by number.

ABOUT THE DEATHS BY DECADE FILE

For those interested in making a study of how the Civil War affected Jefferson County, Mr. Sanderson has constructed tables listing the soldiers' deaths by decade after the war. The tables start out with 1861-1862; then go to 1863, 1864, 1865. The rest of that decade is lumped together, and then 1870-1879; 1880-1889, and so continues to 1939.

The organization of the charts is similar to the other two categories: Surname, Christian name; Middle initial; Age at enlistment; Regiment in which he served followed by the company; Date of death and age at death, and finally Burial place. Some discrepancies between age at enlistment and age at death are caused by incorrect data in the records.

Deaths by Decade

1861-1862 1863 1864 1865 1866-1869
1870-1879 1880-1889 1890-1899 1900-1909 1910-1919
1920-1929 1930-1939 Unknown Years
