Cemeteries of Gadsden County

Updated February 24, 2014

The Mormon Tomb Index

The Gadsden County, Florida, Tomb Index was produced by Members of The Quincy Branch of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. The project was started in 1957 and completed on January 26, 1962.

The Mormon Tomb Index is very helpful in locating a person if you don't already know the cemetery in which the person is buried. It lists people by surname and has a code for the cemetery in which that person is buried. The code identifies the name of the cemetery. From there, you go to the list of cemeteries that have been indexed, click on the one you want, and search for the person. Although a person may show up in the Tomb Index, you will still want to go to the cemetery he/she is buried in to see additional notes on the person and find other family members buried there, also.
