Extracted By Ronald L. Woodward

From FAMILY BRANCHES, Newsletter of the Wabash county Genealogical society, Volume 23, No 6, Feb 2018, Ron Woodward - Editor

The following list of burials was taken from the Wabash Plain Dealer and the Paper of Wabash County obituaries. Obituaries are prime source of family information but one needs to be careful as information can sometimes be wrong or lacking. Obituaries are often written by family members who don't care much for genealogy hence errors can be made. Some people I know even write the obits beforehand so that they will be more accurate. In some cases obits do not appear because the newspaper charges to have them included. It is always a good idea to get a death certificate. Information included here includes name, date of birth, date of death pertinent information and burial site. If a man's obit has his parents then he was born in Wabash County. If a woman's obit has her maiden name then she was born in Wabash County.

I have compiled a book BURIAL RECORDS OF WABASH COUNTY INDIANA 1972 TO 2011 which alphabetically lists the above information. You May have used it or might find it useful. I have also placed the same information on the Wabash County USGenWeb site. You might also find FIND A GRAVE useful in your search. Ron Woodward, 574 Ferry St. Wabash, IN 46992.
