Old burials in Reno County
Posted by: Claudia Laird Glass (ID *****7550) Date: August 27, 2002 at 08:40:29

Question 1: If records were available by name - which I assume they aren't - how do I learn where (by specific land description) William & Hannah Yardy Graves homesteaded their claims when they arrived on Feb 14, 1872 in Reno County, Kansas?

Question 2: How common was it, before 1880, for families to "home bury" their deceased relatives and children on the homestead or farm where they lived?

Question 3: If burials took place in a community or church burial ground from the very early days, where would very old burials be found in Reno County?
I understand from Eastside that their cemetery was chartered in 1883, and when Hutchinson moved northward, several older burial sites were disintered and moved to Eastside. They do not have interment records for burials that were transferred from older cemeteries.

I am looking for burials for the family of Graves (William & Hannah) for:
Frankie Graves d. aged 14 months (6 Jul 1871-1 Sep 1872),
Albert Graves d. aged 25 months (22 May 1873-4 Jul 1875),
and a stillborn Graves in 1880.
