Churchill County Public Cemetery was originally the Fallon Cemetery. In 1945 the County took over maintenance and the Cemetery board consisted of local organizations that had interest in the Cemetery. They were known as the Fallon Cemetery Association. A 4 cent levy was imposed for improvements and maintenance by the County in June, 1944 and took effect in 1945.

In 2000 the Fallon Genealogy Club decided to create a database of the Cemetery as a project. They compiled the information provided by the Cemetery and came up with the basic index.

2001 The Cemetery was walked and the index was matched against the markers and lot book currently in use. 2002 The index was compared to Austin Funeral Home records that were available and County recorder records.

2003 - Current - the obituaries are being added. The obituaries were taken from local newspapers located at the Museum and on microfilm reels at the Churchill County Library.

This is an ongoing project that will require more time to complete. Most of the obituaries from 1905 to 1968 are available in the index.
Please realize that there are errors in the index that still need correcting. With the help of the Public, we hope to alleviate most of the problems.

If you have personal information on a family member that is not listed in this index; such as birth⁄death date, or exactly where they are buried, please fill out the form provided in the kiosk.
