Salem Cemetery Association

The Salem Cemetery Association was formed in 1917 to maintain the Salem Cemetery which is located at 24 Hwy and Blue Mills Road, just east of Independence, Missouri. 

Included in this collection are several journal style books. A blue journal, red journal, and another journal contain burials by lot number. A typed alphabetical index was created by the Association. Sales and deed books include a gray journal (1945-2004), and a red journal (1984-2017). The Association created a collection of obituaries from 1975 to 2017 clipped from the newspaper.

The original records are in possession of the Salem Cemetery Association. Items in this collection were digitized by the Midwest Genealogy Center.
