Jefferson County


Many volunteers have worked very hard to provide the researchers 
of Jefferson County a listing of Cemeteries and to provide pictures
of headstones to help you in your personal research.

PLEASE DO NOT TAKE the cemetery listings and pictures 
that others have worked so hard to provide and add it 
to any other website as your own. 

Thank You 
for understanding and respecting 
the work of others.

Wilkerson, John                         1815
Whitman, Jane                   
Conner, Martha                          1829

*NOTE* From Carol Hounsell and Ann Stoddard, mother and daughter from California While researching our Wilkerson roots in Jefferson County last month we located the Wilkerson Farm Cemetery. It is located on property off Liberty Road in Mt. Vernon. We do not believe this is the original marker. The owner of the property told us that a man came from Washington and had this stone placed. The owner has moved this stone a couple of times to accommodate road work he has done. But near as he can figure the graves are under the hen house. The owner of the property is a distant Wilkerson relative. We are certain that the graves of John Wilkerson, Jane Whitman, his first wife and Martha Conner, his second wife are here. John Wilkerson 1815 - 4/26/1864 Jane (Whitman) Wilkerson 1816 - ? before Feb 6 1849 (1st wife of John) Martha (Conner) Wilkerson 1829-1870- (2nd wife of John)
