Welcome to Newport Cemetery
The old cemetery in downtown Newport is also part of our local heritage. It contains graves dating from the early 1800’s through the latter part of the century, so both cemeteries were in use simultaneously for a while. We’ve used data from the Perry Historians to populate our database with as many of those graves as possible. Sadly, age has damaged many of the stones so the information as recorded is sometimes minimal and occasionally up for interpretation. Download the Original Source Document and Working Notes.
It is the Board's hope that this site and the database within will be a valuable resource for genealogical researchers as well as the community in general. A great deal of information has already been added to our database and more is continually being added and quality checked.
If you need any additional information, feel free to contact our Caretaker at 717-567-3429 for 'on-the-ground' questions
Take a look at our new Photo Gallery where you will find various photos of headstones, name plates, and landscape shots of the Newport Cemetery.
