Black Monument Company

An index to the cemetery marker records of the Black Monument Company.

War of 1812 Contributor

The Black Monument Company was established in Hastings, Michigan in 1862. It became A Black and Son and moved to Grand Rapids, Michigan in the early part of the twentieth century. The company was located at 210-212 S Division for many years.

The information provided in this database has been taken from order books for markers. Most are from the counties of south central and southwest Michigan, but there are exceptions to this. All available information has been included except for the dimensions and material of the stones. Orders which were marked “cancelled” have been included because they include genealogical information. The orders that have a date entered range from 1894 to 1933.

The database also contains 1,974 names and places from a brochure that was published by the Black Monument Company as an advertisement about "our satisfied customers".

WMGS is unable to provide any further information about these markers. Cemetery location information can be obtained from the Library of Michigan, or from the US Geological Survey's online database.


Good Luck with your searches!!!
