Polk County Burials



The CHARTER-PIERCE Memorial Internet Genealogical Society is proud to present an important feature to our home page titled "POLK COUNTY BURIALS". This is an on going project for our members who wish to participate. The information we are presenting is the known burials at the 75 plus cemeteries located within Polk County. Each Cemetery is listed under the respective Township in which it is located. The individuals name and either date of death or burial date is given along with the code for that particular cemetery.
Members will be provided all information we have on any individual found in this section. That information can include birth date, death date, marriage information and referral to other family members, and in some cases the plot owner.
The construction sign under each Cemetery name indicates that work is presently in progress. A percentage completed amount is also shown in parenthesis and will be removed completely when that cemetery has been walked by the Society Members.
