Oak Hill Cemetery Interment Records

Oak Hill Cemetery, located in Lebanon, Indiana, has been a respected place of rest for Boone County residents and others from central Indiana and beyond for over one hundred years. The Lebanon Public Library has been working with Oak Hill in an effort to digitize their interment records which go back to all the way to their very first interment in 1872.

The records were scanned with high quality settings, but due to their large file size the files available here are lower quality copies of the originals. With that being said, the following files are still very large in size and might take awhile to load depending on your internet connection.

W.P.A

WPA Index of Names of Persons and Firms: Boone County, Indiana

This index to Boone County Indiana county histories, atlases and other local documents was published in the late 1930’s as a Work Projects Administration (W.P.A.) project. The index is alphabetical, with an abbreviation for the publication, and a page number. A majority of the publications referenced have been digitized and made available on other websites. For conveniences we have listed the links to the publications below.
