          Following is a list of the cemeteries located in Chase County, Nebraska.   Our plan is to include a list of tombstone inscriptions for each cemetery, along with a date when the cemeteries were indexed.  Lot owners will also be listed where they can be ascertained, especially in the larger cemeteries.     Family historians and Chase County researchers have Kermit Karns, of Imperial, NE to thank for the work he did in visiting cemeteries and recording the tombstone inscriptions listed here.     Many of these cemetery listings were published in the Kansas City Genealogist, published by the Heart of American Genealogical Society.
     In May 2001 John Osler, of Imperial, a member of the Chase County Historical Society, organized tours of several of the country cemeteries, and compiled a booklet of imformation about the cemeteries and photographs.  The book is on view at the Chase County Historical Society Museum, in Champion.

        Chase Cemetery is located in the central part of Chase County in the SE quarter of Section 24, Township 7N, Range 40W, 6 p.m, or about nine miles west and two miles north of the town of Imperial, NE.    The cemetery is managed by a group of local citizens.  In 1999 a sign was added to the gate of the cemetery, and is pictured above on Memorial Day 1999, with flags.

        Following are the cemetery records as indexed by Kermit Karns in August, 1963, and digitally photographed in August 2002. Linda Banks cleaned prairie soil from headstones, clipped grass, and held the mirror when needed.
