Location : Kuhn Farm, SW corner, Section 4, 37, 22, W 3rd, on the old Kuhn Farm, farmed by Kim B. Finley, Luseland, Saskatchewan. Two miles east of Highway 21, intersection with Grid road 659, 6 miles west  Tramping   Lake. Quarter mile west of school house site ( Prairie   Heights ) on ridge overlooking Tramping Lake Plains. The area was settled about 1905 - 07. 

 

This pioneer cemetery, about 1 acre in size, was first inventoried by Kerry and Theron Finley in June 2008. At that time the grave sites were obscured in a thicket of Carraganas ( Siberian Pea Shrubs), surrounded by Fescue ( Prairie Wool) grassland, and invading Brome grass. Settlement ca 1905-07. Part of rich Fescue grasslands associated with Grassy Lake Coulee.

 

In the summer of 2009, through the efforts of descendants ( Sharon Fluney) and local farmers, the cemetery was renovated, the Carraganas were removed and fallen tomb stones were righted. According to Sharon Fluney, in another Sask. genealogy site, " Les Matters and wife/housekeeper and his children are buried in unmarked graves there. They were burned in a house fire."

 

The site was re-inventoried by Valerie Finley in September 2009. She found 14 grave sites with identification and noted at least one unmarked grave. Thus, including Les Matters and an unknown number of his family, there are at least 17 graves. The first burial was in 1922 and the last, Clarence Kuhn, was in 1957.

Recently I did an inventory of an abandoned cemetery that is on my brothers farm near Tramping
Lake Sask. This site is called Prairie Heights
- appropriately named for its commanding view of the Tramping Lake plains. By coincidence my
grandfather John Vernon Finley owned it ( a vestige of Fescue Prairie, overgrown with
Carraganas, and his grandfather John Finley farmed at Oak Heights in a vestige of Tallgrass
Prairie in Ontario. From Prairie Heights you might have seen the dust rising from Palliser's
brigade of Red River carts, after he crossed Tramping Lake coulee to the northeast, on June
23rd, 1858.
