For those that are perhaps seeing these transcriptions for the first time, the transcriptions may give on first glance, the appearance of a great many typos, so I feel obligated to explain that the abundance of y, m, and d represent abbreviations for year, month and day. Although you will find most engravers follow similar patterns, it seems there are several different abbreviations used to represent these three time terms including: y, yr, yrs, yr's & years; m. mo, mos, mo's, and months; d. da, das, da's, and days and on rare occasions, h, hr, hrs, hr's, and hours. I tend not to use commas except to separate surname from given name, given name from date, except where found on actual inscription, same goes for the [.] (period). When you see the symbol [_] (underscore), I use it to represent missing or unreadable letters, or if a lot of letters are unreadable I may express it by several periods, such as Jos...h . Sometimes you will find raised letters such as "c" in surnames such as in McClain, or if the engraver added smaller letters that were left out and added later, when I encounter them, tend to express them, when possible, as found on the stone. Sometimes engravers will use the latin term Æ or æ, this is just a term that generally replaces the word "aged". One last comment, all actual text found engraved, will come first in bold text. All comments, observations, personal knowledge remarks added by submitter, concerning an individual, but not inscribed on stone, will then proceed in regular text. ~R.M.Sizelove~

    Early ledger records show the county commissioners first established this building in December 1838, admitting it's first resident late in December the same year. It was also known as the Poor House, and County Home, it held the distinction of housing among its complex of buildings, the first hospital in the county. There are also county ledgers, containing the records of each person admitted and discharged from this institution. These books also include limited information in some cases such as admittance, birth, death, family associations and discharge dates. (Special note*) Want to thank Katy Klettlinger, Licking County Commissioners Records Center Coordinator and her staff at Archives Records Facility, for their kindness and use of their facilities for allowing me to take a small part in their volunteer project. It has been an honor to work with and learn from their very skilled direction in proper care and handling/cleaning of old original records. Want to also thank the Licking County Commissioners for their farsighted interest in this very worthwile research/archival project.)
   The Federal Census reports described these individuals as paupers, as most were homeless or having no family to care for them, and many were in aged, in ill health, and not able to care for themselves. Many worked on the farm, using their life skills, assisting the institution by helping with their own maintenance, to the extent that they were able. Some residents worked in the gardens, farming, stables, slaughter house, ice house, leather shop, while others assisted with housekeeping duties, to help keep things functioning in the most cost effective manner possible. Some skilled professions were contracted from the local community on a yearly basis. Medical care being one of them, the contract required the doctor to visit the complex at least once a week, plus be on call for any emergency that might arise. They contracted to have their wheat and other grains threshed, others provided transportation for staff and residents.
   This institution should not to be confused with the Children's Home or Asylum or TB Hospital. The residents of this facility were mostly adult folks, many were aged or ill, and for various reasons down on their luck, but otherwise law abiding folks with no place to call home. Some times the Infirmary would also find themselves responsible for the burial of infants who were stillborn by mothers during their stay at the Infirmary. Most of the individuals, who died while residing here, were turned over to family or friends for burial, there is limited information that can also be gleaned from the admittance ledger books. Although it was not often practiced, some times local cemeteries, owned by associations or churches would agree to bury folks from the Infirmary, in an area set aside in their cemetery for this purpose. These areas of a cemetery were called pauper's grave, or sometimes known as potters field. Those that died while residing here and no family or friend could be found to claim their body were buried on the "farm burial plot", at the expense of the county. Not all, but most buried here within the last 100 years have numerical markers, sadly, some stones have been removed from their original location and stacked near the old tree, in the center of the cemetery. Since they have been moved from their original location, they can no longer be known as headstones, but simply memorials. Unfortunately the county budget didn't allow the expense of costly engraved marble or granite tombstones, so plain stone markers were used, each containing a unique inscribed number to reference the burial location of each person. Each marker is inscribed with a unique number associated to an individual's name, in the county ledger book. Preliminary research shows the county first started using this numbering system around or near 1904. This numbering system continued until the institution ceased to serve the counties needs. There are notations of burials before 1904, but it seems not as many as first thought. These earlier burials are possibly in unmarked graves, as the admittance journals leave good records of their existence, but no numbering system or inscription can be found, thus far to mark their internment location. There is simply a remark next to their name in the resident book noting they were buried on the farm plot or old plot burial. The last time this cemetery area was used or at least the last entry mentioning a burial at the Infirmary Cemetery was 29 September 1955. The complex itself ceased to be used for housing individuals in about 1969, with the remaining population of residents being transferred to the old T.B. Hospital located on Price Road. This facility on Price Road, now houses the Licking County Health Department and other county level government agencies.
   With further research, perhaps we can bring to light a more complete record of these folks burial location, but more likely, their burial place will remain unknown other than a general location. The burials at this cemetery up until about 1904, have no headstones. We have found evidence of burials taking place very early in the operation of this institution. While reading minutes of a meeting that took place on February 5, 1852, there is mention of payments being approved by the board, for the following;" Paid John Kreager, for taking care of burying outdoor paupers,$8.50 and John Nelson for coffin for out door paupers". In this particular case, the deceased might have been buried at a potters field plot elsewhere or more likely at the old farm plot. This term "Out Door Pauper" seems to be reference to a term being used for folks in the system, but being cared for outside the Infirmary building. It seems, while most were residing at the institution, others, perhaps with less debilitating conditions, were placed in the general community and compensation made to the caregivers. I also viewed other earlier notations of burial expenses in the 1840's and many examples of payments made for harvesting (thrashing) of grain grown on the farm, expenses paid for transporting paupers to the Infirmary, shoe making supplies, blacksmithing supplies, there's quite a list at the end of each year in the fiscal reports that are submitted to the county commissioners for their approval. The County Infirmary was for the most part self sufficient, growing vegetables, grains for bread and animal feed, raising live stock for beef, pork and poultry meat, milk, other food resources, and they also had an apple orchard.
    I will continue to update this page as data become available. My preliminary research leads me to estimate somewhere in the neighborhood of 260 burials took place here. The first few listed which contain full names and dates are the exception, not the rule. I assume they were directors or their family members, buried here and not residents. Couple of the headstones look modern, so they may have been residents and tombstones placed by family members to replace the original numbered headstone, although doubtful because I have not found any numbered stone matching one with given and surname inscribed. I did a search of death certificates and have added this additional information when available, they will be noted in bold print within brackets []. One last comment; modern aerial view of cemetery shows the actual depressions of each burial location within cemetery, this is not so apparent when walking within the cemetery perimeter. The most recent update to this page was made on 12 Aug., 2010. Robert M. Sizelove, Sr.
