Lyon County, Kansas Cemeteries
The D.A.R. read the cemeteries around 1940 and the Flint Hills Genealogical Society reread the cemeteries again in the 1980's. Currently members of the Flint Hills Genealogical Society are now updating and rereading the cemeteries (2011-2015). Several of the head stones read by the D.A.R. are no longer standing, so information from both sources and the current information are being put together in ONE database. As the cemeteries as completed, the basic information will be posted online for family researchers to use. The information will added to each cemetery page and the icon will appear in front of the cemetery name on the list below. We are also posting pictures of the stones of the cemeteries. Those cemeteries with pictures linked to the readings will have the icon as well.
Most of the cemeteries have a history which contains many family names and information about early settlers that might be of help to those researching the Lyon County, Kansas area. Just click on the cemetery name below, and it will take you the history that was written about it, location of the cemetery and burial information. Remember some of these histories were written some time ago. Some notes have been added to help you when a landmark has changed. Many of the landmarks mentioned may not be there today, as some buildings (mostly school houses and country churches), and bridges have been torn down thru the years.
If you notice anything that is incorrect, or if you have a photo, obituary, family web page or any other information that would be suitable for the cemetery pages, please email the information to the webmaster using the email address in the Contact Us link above.
