Weber County Poor Farm Cemetery

The Weber County Poor Farm Cemetery is located in Roy. It was thought, after a dedication ceremony in the 1980’s, that this cemetery would be preserved. Unfortunately, that is not the case. The dedication plaque was removed from the property and a local contractor has made the decision to build on top of the cemetery. The graves have not been moved.

These records are from the infirmary and list the date of admission to the infirmary and the date of discharge, death in this case. Occasionally, a cause of death was recorded.
