Harper County


Welcome to Harper County KSGenWeb









While out one Sunday afternoon, Laura Wilson and two friends took pictures of the cemeteries in Harper County.  They tried to find some tombstones that we thought would be interesting.  Attica Cemetery blessed us with two outstanding markers. One of a Civil War nurse and another that had known the president, Abraham Lincoln, who also had his own political views inscribed on his marker.
