Noble County tombstone readings were first taken by members of DAR in 1934.  The Noble County Genealogical Society updated readings in the early 1980's.  From 1996 until current year, records are updated each summer, and the most recent readings were obtained in 2013.

About Photos: J R Nash has photographed some of the gravestones and has generously contributed them to this record.  The readable information from the stone is being added to the site as time allows.  A copy of the actual full-sized photo may be obtained by contacting jeenee@embarqmail.com.  Permission must be obtained from J R Nash if copies for other than personal use are to be made.  He can be reached at:  truly123pics@hotmail.com.  In order to access a photograph, click on an underlined name within the cemetery record.  This will reveal the page where the photograph is stored.  The gravestone photo will appear in the top row. (Names have not been linked within the alphabetical listing.)

Previous  readings were included here when unkempt conditions prevented access to the cemeteries and/or deteriorated and broken stones made accurate readings impossible.  Multiple names engraved on one stone are listed individually here for alphabetical sorting purposes.  A 2-digit code is used to identify the larger cemeteries, followed by the section and row number.  Information obtained from burial records (when there is no tombstone) is designated by "bu rec".  Dates in italics were taken from obituary records and may or may not be engraved. * indicates a stone was not located in current research, but prior records were included.

never tried to help Grandpa remember where he put his hearing aid.
