The Eggelston Ranch was the original owners. "The writings of early residents indicate that there are many more graves than were identified by the 1980 inventory taken by the Smoky Hill Chapter of the National Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution. They only identified 13 legible grave stones. The oldest identified was that of Hubert Fonder, who died in 1871. He was the husband of Miriam Donegan Fonder, who started the Fonder School. The last known burial on the site was in 1955."[1]"

Another one that is NOT here is Jose C. Jaramillo.

The goal of this project is to ...

  1. Place all photographs here of the cemetery itself and the area that have been taken. And any newspaper articles found.
  2. try to identify the unknowns and the weathered headstones and add them or IF no info is found leave them here for research notes

Right now this project just has one member, me. I am Carole Taylor.

Here are some of the tasks that I think need to be done. I'll be working on them, and could use your help.

  1. There are at least 4 headstones, broken, illegible that need to be IDd
  2. New photos after the grass has been mowed down

The cemetery today was covered in tall prairie grass and wild rose bushes. It really needs to have TLC.
