Best Answer

In some regions your local council or town clerk may have information on who is buried in cemeteries within their jurisdiction.

For burials in relatively modern times (20th century and later) death certificates and obituaries often list where an individual is buried.

The USGenWeb project has created a web site for every county in every state of the US. Many have some sort of cemetery listing related to them that you can search on-line. In addition, a variety of other on-line cemetery indexes are available.
