Traveling west on Highway 28. Just east of mileage marker 104, turn off the highway onto Yarwood Road, cross the railroad tracks and go up the hill. Follow that road until Lamona Cemetery Road, where a mile-long dirt road leads directly to the cemetery gate.

The cemetery is about 1 mile SW of the site where the town of Lomana was years ago. It is in the SE corner of Sec. 34 T22 R34 and abuts the Lamona Lutheran Cemetery.

It is not being cared for by anyone at the present time. The Lamona Public Cemetery was deeded to the Lincoln Co Commissioners, but it does not have a sexton nor did they create a cemetery district for it.

The Lamona Public Cemetery was the first cemetery there, and was dedicated on Oct. 13, 1898. When the Zion Lutheran Church of Lamona was formed, they created their own cemetery.

The list belows includes readings from stones, data from obituaries and funeral home ledgers as well as family.

This cemetery was walked in June 1999 by Marge Womach and myself. At that time Marge Womach was doing her best to bring the chest high weeds under control.
