~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~The main database was compiled mainly from readable gravestone inscriptions from all the following known Hemmingford and area cemeteries (which could also be called "outdoor museums"). Entries showing "no stone", "unknown stone", or if no specific stone is mentioned were taken from church records.
The cemetery records, which total over 7500, are combined and sorted by last name. Death dates range from 1808 to 2017.
