Lafayette County Cemeteries

 Lafayette County Cemeteries

The Cemetery list was taken from "Ancestral Diggin's" a quarterly newsletter of the Lafayette County genealogy workshop.  If there is a Cemetery that has been missed, Please contact  Dori Leekley

Please remember that the following information is only a starting point for your research!

You should "Verify" all information found.  Visit the actual cemetery where your ancestor is buried, obtain birth and death records, baptismals and/or other documents that will help you to cross examine your finds!

 I have had the great pleasure in visiting Lafayette County for a week and was able to read some of the following Cemeteries.  When time permits, I will place them online.  If you have an "Ancestor" who was buried in a Lafayette County Cemetery, Please send me the information and I will list it under the appropiate cemetery.


Carol Stout Buttery      Thank You Carol!!   

My grandfather Chris E. Nelson for many years owned the Nelson Funeral Home in Darlington, Wisconsin

"funeral books" dating from 1925 into 1947.   Many records have minimal information but many have a great deal of information. Some of them have obituaries attached.    I will do look ups - mostly in Darlington township, with a few in Fayette, Wiota, Lamont, Waldwick.

Dori Leekley  Please search this link, CEMETERY SURNAMES to see if your surname is listed.  Then email me with your surname plus the pages that they are listed on.  I will then send you the information for that surname.    ONLY  "ONE" SURNAME PER EMAIL!
