If you have one or a few headstone listings for Chautauqua County we would love to post them on these cemetery pages - you may use this available form. If you have a large number of entries or a complete cemetery, please email me direct for instructions.Also, please contact me with any corrections you might have. Lori DeWinkler  


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. Mr. Guy and the Montgomery County Genealogical Society, the copyright holder, have generously consented to allow the information to be published at this web site. I ask you to please honor their copyright. Several cemeteries have been updated by Don Tharp in 2007.


Abbreviations used at this web site in transcribing the material:
b - born, d - died, c/o - child or children of, d/o - daughter of, s/o - son of,

Lines denoted by **** are names from obituaries that have been added to Mr. Guy's list. The names are links to the obituary for that person.

If you have an obit of a person either listed or unlisted and would like to share it with others, I would be happy to post the obit and link to it. DET
