Chautauqua County, Kansas

Cemeteries Index



The listings of cemeteries found here are for the most part, the results of many hours of work extending over several years by Mr. Herman Guy and others.

What motivated their efforts? In Mr. Guy's own words "....We as a people were not specialists in keeping vital statistics in past generations. Our time was more occupied with the struggle of every day living, in settling and populating this beautiful part of the county. Since good records are not available in this area before 1911 or 1912, we are forced to turn to the cemeteries to find what information might be available either in the records or on the gravestones. In order to assist the searcher we have compiled all of the information from all the gravestones we have found. We did not note epitaphs; only names and dates and when given, relationships...."

Mr. Guy made this information available to all of us in 1989 through the publication Cemeteries in Chautauqua County, Kansas.
