Garfield County Cemeteries

If you have names and/or photos of anyone buried in any of these cemeteries
please consider sharing them with other researchers.
I will happily make a list of names and dates or scan in headstone photos
using information set to me by you. I do not have the ability to survey and photograph
these cemeteries myself.  If you can help, everyone would benefit.
For more information please send me an email.
Some information about the locations of some of these cemeteries comes from the
"Garfield County Roundup, History 1867-1967"
compiled by Jack Stevens, Cemetery Committee
This book contains much more information about Garfield County and can be
purchased from them.  Information about Latitudes and Longitudes and the maps come
from the USGS Geographic Names Information System.
