BADGER CREEK - STEVENSON CEMETERY
Badger Creek, or Stevenson Cemetery, as it was first called, is a small plot in Section 14, Township 19, and Range 12. It is located just east of Badger Creek on Highway 50 South, not far from the junctions of the Cottonwood and Neosho Rivers, in Lyon County. It is now cared for by the township. In 1878, the TIBBALS family owned the land on which the cemetery lies. At that time the STEVENSON, PEARSON, LUDY, and FUQUA families all lived near by. One of the oldest stones is that of Nathan STEVENSON . It is weathered and very hard to read. The date of his death is either 1867 or 1862, and he died at the age of 68 years.
