Ortona Cemetery History & Index

There are several burial places located inside the boundaries of Glades County, Florida. Ortona Cemetery is the largest, it is located on SR78 just east of the community of Ortona. This cemetery was dedicated to the people of Glades County after the 1926 hurricane devastated the Glades County area. There are many persons buried in this cemetery that there is no record on file for their burial. Also at this cemetery is a burial mound, located in the northwest corner of block "M." In the past no plots have been sold in this area for concern that some of the mound may have deteriorated away. I have been told that this mound is a part of the Indian mound that is located in the Indian Mound Park behind the cemetery, and I have also been told there was a mass grave that caused this mound after the 26th hurricane. This cemetery is maintained by Glades County employees with tax payers funds.

The above information was volunteered by Ms. Ellen Gibson.

"South Florida Pioneers," by Robert Livingston contains transcriptions from the Ortona Cemetery with dates. Please go to Volunteers for look ups.

The following list of grave site "owners" is public record. Those listed are the purchasers and/or occupants of the grave sites in Ortona Cemetery. Listed next to the owner is the (block).
