Salem-Friedhof Cemetery
Bushton, Rice County, Kansas

Lat: 38° 27' 56"N, Lon: 98° 24' 21"W
Farmer Township, Section 29

Contributed by Ermadean Boardman, Apr 19, 2011, last edited Apr 28, 2011 [boardman@hbcomm.net]. Total records = 242.

From Bushton, take Main Street south to the end, turn west onto Avenue B and continue to the first corner. Turn south onto 5th Road and continue for 2 3/4 miles. The cemetery is on the east side of the road just north of the church.

This cemetery is associated with the Salem Methodist Church and was established in the late 1800s, judging from the headstones. The cemetery has many old graves, but it is still being used. The stones are in good shape. I found very few names in old lists that I didn't find stones for.

The little country church burned a few years ago and they rebuilt a very nice ground level church. The old church had lots of steps and a basement, so this is more accessible.

I walked this cemetery in Apr of 2011, using my digital camera. This includes all existing and legible stones and markers found at that time.
