Cornell Cemetery Index

Recently work was completed on updating the Cornell Cemetery Index along with an aerial map. 

The Chippewa County Genealogical Society indexed the Cornell Cemetery in 1991. Gravesite information from new gravestones were added in 2020.

This effort was undertaken for the benefit of living relatives, friends, and community members, near and far.
