Deep Springs Cemetery

Cemetery pen and ink drawing.The Deep Springs Cemetery is situated on Highway T, five miles southeast of Milan, and is contained in Section 35, Township 62 North, Range 20 West. The cemetery is situated in wooded hill country carved out by the last glaciation.

Deep Springs dates from the 1840's, and is therefore one of the oldest cemeteries in Sullivan County. Some headstones are broken, some have disappeared under the grass, and some are standing upright under trees on the perimeter, away from the burial sites. The newer part of the cemetery on the south end is arranged neatly in rows, but the north part is not. Some families are partially grouped together throughout. More complete information is available, but this transcription is taken (2002), as closely as we could make it, from the headstones themselves. If mistakes were made, they can be attributed to the weathering of many of the stones.

About This Update

The original compiled data had not been updated in 10 years. Information from Find a Grave Deep Springs Cemetery link: has provided most of the updates. Map to the cemetery as well as some tombstone images are shown. Not all entries below are on the FindaGrave site & vice versa. In some cases especially if surname or dates clarified information, FindaGrave data was included here but the researcher must look at BOTH records as well as other resources. No link does not mean that the person is not on the FindaGrave site.

The data has been put in table form. Original data will be kept on this site but no further updates will be done to that page.

Data where surname is known is shown first; data with no surname now in separate table
