Hereafter you will find transcriptions of tombstones from various cemeteries located around the Mahoning Valley. There is a focus on cemeteries located in Mahoning County, Ohio. Please realize that some of the older notations may have a variety of mistakes because of the poor quality of material used for headstones. Northeastern Ohio has numerous headstones made from sandstone. As a result, some stones cannot be read. In addition, I transcribed the vast majority of these tombstones by row and by each individual stone in that row. Therefore, you may be able to make a relation to other tombstones based on the location of one stone to another. Finally, please realize that someone like me cannot help but be affected by some of the material I come across in these cemeteries. I find it very difficult when I come across the tombstones of infants, toddlers, and even the adolescents. Some tombstones are more memorable than others. For that reason, I have placed one of my favorites right below. Click on the "Locate Cemetery" button provided above to search a particular cemetery in a township or municipality.
