Ask a Genealogist: Searching for a Vermont cemetery.

Question:

I have found several typed death records of the Wyman family in Windsor Vermont. The records show burial in "Trebo" which I take to mean "Trebo Cemetery". I've found that there was a Trebo Cemetery, but cannot find any information about who was buried there. It is not clear to me that it still exists. How can I find who was buried there? The deaths were in the mid-1800s. I have reason to believe other relatives were also buried there.

Answer:

Thank you for your query about the Trebo Cemetery in Chester, Windsor, Vermont.

The Vermont Old Cemetery Association 's Burial Grounds of Vermont has survey-like descriptions of cemeteries within the state broken down by county. Also, the Index to Known Cemetery Listings in Vermont published by the Vermont Historical Society will give references to where such listings can be found. Worldcat lists the Smithsonian Institution Libraries as the closest holding library for both these titles (their online catalog, library.si.edu/collections ). Interestingly, Find A Grave shows a 2010 burial for an Emmett E. Armstrong in a "private cemetery" named the "Trebo Road Cemetery" and his is the only burial recorded in this cemetery on this website.
