Additional burials in this cemetery have been identified by members of the Cass County Historical Society. They have published a new listing for the cemetery. Click here for information on where to purchase the book which contains the updated burial information on this cemetery.

Covered with a dense growth of brush and fallen trees, this cemetery is not recognizable as a burial ground from the road that lies about 150 yards south, straddling the Cass-Morgan county line. Crow Cemetery is about two miles from Prentice and about one mile west of Cooper Cemetery.

Stan & Jeanie Lowe along with their goddaughter, Brianna Boggs, and her friend, Merissa Richards, re-read this cemetery on 19 Jan 2004. They took pictures of the stones they found, but the frozen ground made probing impossible. They plan to return to search for more stones when warmer weather returns.
