For this book, Columbine Genealogical and Historical Society (CGHS) members extracted original information from the second handwritten volume of interment records belonging to the Littleton Cemetery Association in Littleton, Colorado. Volume I was published separately, and this is Volume II.
Entries listed in this volume began shortly after 1950. Listings ended at different times for various letters of the alphabet, from the late 1970s through the mid '80s. For the most part, deaths in 1981 were not recorded in the interment book.
As time goes by, original records become more fragile. Our organization adopts projects like this one to preserve data and make records such as these available and more accessible to researchers far and wide. Some data has been excluded here in the interest of privacy, of which cause of death would be most interesting to a family researcher.
Every effort has been made to copy names as entered in the original book. Obvious misspellings in the text are due to our decision to copy as we interpreted various handwriting styles, without inserting changes or alterations. The phrase, “copied as written”, has been used to flag entries containing variations from the usual. Examples are: differences in surname spellings, possible errors in gender identification or dates, and question marks as recorded denoting relationships (i.e., wife?). In the interest of consistency, we have rounded ages of children rather than use fractions.
