Welcome to the Benton Cemeteries website. The purpose of this site is to provide basic cemetery information and pertinent notes so individual researchers will not have to “reinvent the wheel” by tracking down the same material that others have already found.

All information, especially source material, for inclusion in this web page should be sent to info@vfthomas.com or mailed to “Benton Cemeteries” at the address at the top of this page.

A little work by each of us will save a lot of work for all of us.







Below are the names of Benton’s cemeteries, based on a list obtained from the town office on 20 June 2014. Click on any name and you will be taken to an entry for that cemetery.
