      The Alliance (Greenwood) Cemetery, Alliance, Nebraska

      This cemetery is located one mile east and 1/2 mile north of Alliance, Nebraska in Box
      Butte County.

      The plot of ground was first bought by the Alliance Cemetery Association on April 11,
      1890. On August 10, 1915, the city of Alliance bought the land from the Association.

      The first burial was Mrs. Clifford in 1889, before the land was actually bought.  The
      first burial on record is that of C. M. McFall, July 2, 1919. the records are in charge of
      the City Clerk.

      The cemetery is still being used and is in very good condition. This record is complete
      to September 1, 1940.  Sometimes we hear people speak of Greenwood Cemetery. The
      official name, recorded in the minutes of the meeting of the Alliance Cemetery
      Association on April 11, 1890 is Alliance Cemetery. This is no record of any change.
