Milwaukee County Almshouse & Poor Farm Cemeteries Wisconsin List of Burials

The Milwaukee County Farm Cemetery (a.k.a. Potter's Field) was used during the years 1872-1974. This cemetery was used for the poorhouse inmates and also for burial of other indigent people and transients for whom no funds were available for burial. The cemetery may have been in use prior to 1872. However, there is no documentation of burials occurring before 1872. Due to the fact that there are nearly 6,400 names in the burial register book the names of the deceased have been separated into groups of years.

The original site (Jennifer Fleischmann's Poorhouse Files) that contained these transcriptions was last updated in 2001 and has been offline since February 2006. Rather than see these names lost, Olive Tree Genealogy has given them a permanent home in its Almshouse, Poorhouse & Insane Asylums Section.

Field of blood, field of the forgotten. The Potter's Field of Milwaukee County.

A recent discovery of a forgotten pauper cemetery at the Milwaukee County Medical Center has profound and far-reaching ramifications. More than 5,000 are buried in this graveyard, compelling an investigation into the circumstances surrounding its loss. That the cemetery lies beneath county buildings without official knowledge is a disgrace. The proper dignity of a marked and undisturbed grave was denied to these former county residents because of their poverty. How this discovery is managed will reflect our commitment to both high ideals and the law. This project endeavors to reconstruct the origins of the pauper cemetery, containing a brief history of the poor in Milwaukee County, and an examination of the Almshouse, Milwaukee County's first medical institution. Finally, a postscript offers a parallel between the writings of Charles Dickens and the pauper cemetery. [ National Library of Medicine]
