About this Cemetery:
This is a beautiful family cemetery set on a rural road surrounded by prairie farmland and fronted by stone pillars and wrought iron gates. A plaque is on one of the stone pillars dedicating the gates to the memory of Emmett and Mary Murphy. The lot is immaculate, and dotted with several large trees.

This is a complete transcription by reading and photographing the gravestones. Research at Johnson County Archives provided a transcription from the early 1970s, found in the Johnson Co. Cemetery Index, Johnson Co. Genealogical Society and Library, 1975. After a comparison of my transcription to this earlier one, I was able to fill in a few illegible blanks in my transcription. Photos available upon request.
