This stone appears to be inscribed in another language. Since I could not decipher it with accuracy I put no dates and have transcribed it exactly as written.

This information collected and recorded by Carrie Hall, 410 Wedgewood Ct., Hesston, Kansas 67062. My email address is carriehall@fastmail.fm. I will do look ups for any Harvey County cemetery and some surrounding counties as well.  I don't charge anything for my time, I only ask to be reimbursed for expenses such as mileage, photo developing, postage etc.
