GLESMANN CEMETERY | Back to Cemetery Index | |Grabow Cemetery


The Glesmann Cemetery is a small family cemetery, first used in 1877. All burials there are of members of the Glesmann, Gottsch and related families. It is located about 1/4 miles east of Highway 50, between Fairview and Capehart Rds.

A deed from Orville Enteman, Referee, to George W. Lutz was filed on 24 Jan 1932 in Book 59, Page 178. The deed was for the Southwest Quarter of Sec 12, Twp 13, Range 11, excepting the old family cemetery.

A "Deed and Dedication, Tract for burial purposes" dated 24 Jan 1932, was recorded on 29 Jul 1940 in Book 59, Page 250. It was signed by Glesmann family members and provided that they "Do hereby dedicate and set apart as a family burial ground for the children of John D. Glesmann, deceased, and burial place for the graves of the persons now buried thereon, forever..." [following is a legal decription of the one acre plot and a 12-foot raodway leading from Highway 50 to the cemetery]"... TO HAVE AND TO HOLD the said above described tract of land unto and for the benefit and use of the person entitled to use said tract as such burial grounds, and the next of kin of same and of persons now deceased buried therein, their heirs and assigns forever, to be set apart, kept fenced, and forever maintained as the family burying ground, and for other purpose than that to which the parties hereto dedicate the same."

The last burial was in 1945.
