Can someone tell me who handles the old cemeteries for
Outagamie co. Also would the index for the cemeteries also
include those buried without a stone, or are they all only
read and listed if theres a stone there. Interested in the
Old Maple Creek Cemetery records and any cemetery in the
township of Liberty. Does anyone know who has these old
records.

The LDS Family History Libraries have microfilmed the lists that have been compiled for these cemeteries. The FHL number is shown on this web page

I really don't think there's any one entity that "handles" Outagamie County cemeteries. Each cemetery would be managed by the church or enterprise which owns it, and they would be the primary points of contact.

If you're looking for compiled lists and indexes, you may want to check back issues of the Wisconsin State Historical Society's newsletter. They have county pages, which have lists of compiled tombstone inscription lists. Generally they take the list and print 2-4 pages per issue for as many issues as it takes to complete the transcription. For example, the list for Hortonville's Union Cemetery was published in five installments for a total of about 18 pages from Sep 1989-Jan 1991. Jim Hansen is the Genealogical Reference Librarian at WSHS (phone 608-264-6400 or check out the website linked below).

I believe there also is an active group called the Wisconsin Old Cemetery Society, which has been instrumental in transcribing cemetery headstones for years. I think they also publish a newsletter. Good luck.
