A few interested individuals over the years have copied portions of our Hebron cemeteries for their own personal use. None, to my knowledge, have attempted to record all of them or to make their find-ings available to the general public. The Hebron Historical Society is pleased to correct this oversight.
The compiler has carefully visited and searched each cemetery in Hebron and noted down each gravestone inscription. Every attempt has been made to accurately transcribe and record this information. We hope the researcher will find it of value.
