Frequently Asked Questions

Where is my ancestor buried?

While we regret that historical books containing burial records from Hope and Glenwood Cemeteries are not available to the public due to their delicate condition, the information has been digitized at the Town Hall. Please contact the Cemetery Sexton or Town Clerk to look up burial records.
