Jefferson Co Nebraska

  
  


Small pile of stones, look to be foot stones or bases

The Meridian Presbyterian Cemetery is located in Section 19, Meridian Precinct. From Fairbury go west on Hwy 136 for about 5 miles. Turn nort on 562nd Ave and go north for 5 miles. Turn west onto 717th Road and go 3 1/2 miles. Follow the main road as it curves to the south for 1/4 mile and then curves back to the west. Shortly after you turn back west there will be a mowed field drive on the north side of the road with a small sign pointing to the cemetery. The field drive is accessible by car if it has not rained recently, and there is room to park at the top of the hill. The cemetery is at the top of the drive on the west side.

This cemetery is in fairly good condition and is fenced and gated but unlocked. The church that was here closed in 1926 and combined with the Alexandria Church. This is a complete listing of all stones found in August 2008.

Row & Grave Numbers: Row #1 Grave #1 is in the northwest corner of the cemetery. All stones were read from north to south, rows read west to east.
