Selected Inscriptions

Allen and DeKalb Counties, Indiana

The following is a list of cemetery inscriptions I have compiled from photographs taken during two trips to northeastern Indiana. It is by no means a comprehensive list for any of the counties, surnames, or cemeteries featured and, while I have tried my best to make it error-free, it may contain errors. If you see what you believe to be an error, please let me know. Since I am actively researching many of the surnames featured below, I have further information on some of the individuals listed. If you find a match with your own research, I would love to hear from you. Please e-mail me: rbngdfello@aol.com

For a more in-depth treatment of cemetery inscriptions in Allen Co., IN, try Allen County Genealogical Society of Indiana's cemetery books.

Any material in [brackets] is information I have added and was not present on the gravestone.
