There are two readings of Olin cemetery posted on the site:
JONES COUNTY GENEALOGICAL SOCIETY
Read in October 2000 and submitted by Joanne Wilken, these pages list burials at Olin Cemetery before 1951 and include extensive notes.
RITA BALICHEK &
CINDY ROHWEDDER

Read in June 2011, this reading includes all burials.


In the JCGS listing there is a column labelled "SS" for Shared Stone. Sometimes, information about more than one person is included on the same stone. These people may not be buried in adjacent graves or even buried in the same section. The numbers in this column will help you determine the burial locations of people who share a gravestone.


In the JCGS listing some gravestone locations are identified by row/stone and some by section/lot/space. There are no written records at all for the old part of the cemetery, which is listed by row and stone number. The newer part of the cemetery is divided into sections, lots and spaces. These numbers are used where available.
