Scope and Content
The Paragonah sexton created a register of persons who were buried in the Paragonah cemetery. This register begins with a map of the cemetery which identifies the owner of each plot. The general map is followed by maps for each plot, which indicate who was buried in the plot and in what position. Each map is accompanied by a list of information pertaining to the persons buried therein, including full name, birth date and place, names of mother and father, death date and place, burial date, and name of spouse.
Paragonah interment register begins with a general map of the Paragonah cemetery. Thereafter, the register presents maps of individual cemetery plots beginning with the northeast corner of the cemetery and working east to west. The next row is presented west to east and so forth. If the sexton had not added additional plots in space left between the original plots, then the maps would be in numerical order.
Cemetery deeds from Paragonah (Utah), Series 23647, contain deeds validating ownership of cemetery plots.
Burial permits from Paragonah (Utah), Series 23648, identify the owners of various cemetery plots and also provide vital information about persons interred.
This series is classified as Public.
