Bartel Cemetery
Jefferson Co Nebraska

Bartel Cemetery is located between Fairbury and Jansen on 715th Road. From Fairbury, go east on Hwy 136, turn north onto 571st Ave, go north about 1 1/2 miles, then turn east and go 1/2 mile. The cemetery sits on the north side of the road. It is less than a mile directly east of the Grandy Cemetery, and just over a mile directly west of the Jansen Cemetery. Section 32, Cub Creek precinct. Visited March 2007.

The only remnants of this cemetery is a concrete slab with a stone and metal plaque set in it. I do not know if the graves were unmarked, or if the original gravestones are buried under the concrete. Unfortunately, there are no dates for any of the names. If anyone has any information about what happened to this cemetery or the people buried there, please email me

** Updated November 2011 - Tom C. has provided dates and family information for the persons buried here. This information is listed in italics **
