Direction to Eberly Cemetery

From Sioux City ( measured at the intersection of the bypass "I129" [that's Interstate 129] and Hwy 20) it is a total of 6 miles to the cemetery. From Sioux City you will go East, on Hwy 20, to the intersection of Charles Ave., which goes north to D18 (which some people call old hwy. 20, which it is) this road is curvy and a little hilly. Go east and you will see it on the north side of the road. DON'T BLINK. You will miss it. It is on a hill and a curve of the road. The total from Sioux City to the cemetery is again 6 miles. After you turn onto "D18" it is only 2.8 miles. From Lawton going west on Hwy 20 turn north on Dallas Ave. then west on "D18" total from the west city limits of Lawton to the cemetery is 4 miles. After you turn on "D18" it is only 1.7 miles. If you are on the new Hwy 20 and you see a farm dealer store ( I think it was John Deere) then it is just one mile north of that dealership, but you can not get there from the dealership.

Map to Cemetery


Anna Rentel, is buried in the Eberly Cemetery but there is no marker and the understanding is the records were lost either in a flood or fire. She was born in 1849 in Canton Bern, Switzerland. She died in childbirth during the 1st day of the infamous Blizzard of 1888. That would have been January 12, 1888. Her maiden name was Anna Keller and she lived in Kansas prior to about 1884. At the time of her death she lived on a farm with her husband Julius Rentel.
