Wayne County, Ohio



The cemeteries and indexes listed on this site are in conjunction with the Wayne County Cemetery Preservation Society (WCCPS).

Please let us introduce ourselves to you. We are a genealogical organization that is working for YOU and anyone who has ancestors from Wayne County. Our name is The Wayne County Cemetery Preservation Society. As our name suggests, one of our main goals is to preserve all the graves and cemeteries of the county, but the reason for our formation and being encompasses much more than “saving cemeteries.”

We have made it our goal to accomplish the following tasks:

This Is A Cemetery….

Lives are commemorated, deaths are recorded, families are reunited, memories are made tangible, and love is undisguised. Communities accord respect, families bestow reverence, historians seek information, and our heritage is thereby enriched. Testimonies of devotion, pride and remembrance are carved into stone to pay warm tribute to accomplishments and to the life, not death, of a loved one.

The cemetery is homeland for family memorials that are a sustaining source of comfort to the living. A cemetery is a history of people, a perpetual record of yesterday, and a sanctuary of peace and quiet today. A cemetery exists because every life is worth remembering – always.
