Brush Creek Cemetery Photo Gallery
Below are some photos Kate, Jorden, & I took when visiting this cemetery over the Fourth of July week end.
you may click on any photo and it will open in it's own window for a better view. Thanks!
This Cemetery could use some tenderly loving care. It's back off a main road by a cornfield. Have to look up the directions as I just go there automatically. There are many tombstones that are broken and lying on the ground or covered up altogether. Kate dug some up and with the photos when I get them online you will see for yourself. It gets mowed and some put flowers and flags out but many of the older tombstones are going to be lost if something is not done to prevent this. So, if you have relatives buried here please feed my doggie below with emails so we can do something to save these tombstones. Thanks... Happy Days....
In doing the photo gallery for this page I always compare with the listings I have. This cemetery has to be walked again by me in order to get a few things straight. Not all of the information contained on the tombstones are contained in the listing on the previous page.
There are 53 photos here. I need to go back and check a few things. This is not all that is buried here in this cemetery. There are places that look like there should be more people. and after doing some research today and typing up a few bios from 1886 P & B for the site have found more relatives lived in the area and possibly more children would of also been buried here. On the listings page not all of these tombstones are on there plus, some tombstones we didn't find. There were a few piles of them. These photos were taken July 4th week end of 2005. I had my daughter and my 3year old great-nephew to help but it was also very very hot. We've had a very very hot and dry summer. You can click on a thumbnail and it open the photo for a bigger view. Thanks.
Kate & I have since returned, dug up, and re-photographed the whole cemetery again. Will be putting some of them here a little later. This was done this spring. There are people buried here who are not known. Bases with no tombstones sitting on them. Any information feel free to email me as I would and am seeking information on person's buried here. Also, going to talk to the people who mow it & take care of it to see if they can't put the tombstones upright we dug up and such and to do something about Mr. Raney's tombstone. Thanks for all of your help.
If you know of anyone who is buried here or information that is not correct feel free to
Am always open for new information, corrections, additions, etc. Thanks & Happy Days....
Have a Great Day!!! & Happy Gene Hunting to you & yours may you find whom or whomever you are searching for.... May you ear echoes from the past......
