Cuming County Cemetery Index

Following is a list of Cemeteries in and around Cuming County:

Information received from the Elkhorn Valley Genealogical Society

Lois Wegner is credited with gathering information and locating of most of the cemeteries in Cuming County. She has located them on a large map which is in the Cuming County Museum at the Depot in Neligh Park in West Point, NE.

The dates of the cemeteries vary depending if one takes the first burial dates or when the cemetery association was started, or when the ground was purchased and designated as a cemetery. So, many different dates may apply to each cemetery. Also, some cemeteries are known locally by different names.
