Mennonite Cemetery
Lyon County, Kansas

Survey © David L. Habegger
Submitted by: Betty Hartzler

The metal gate posts are set in cement. On the west side the cement has inscribed on it: Mennonite Cemetery, J. J. Musselman and sons. On the east side the cement has inscribed: J.J. Musselman, Dec. 14, 1925, E. J. M., O. R. M. The initials O. R. M. are inscribed twice. The cement on the right side is broken along the edges with some letters broken off. The cemetery had been recently mowed so it was in good condition. There are three rows of graves, with the middle row having only three tombstones. The back row has a number of places with no tombstones. The survey was taken in rows, West, Middle and East from South to North
