     The First Sharon Springs Cemetery was located in a pasture privately owned by Mr. Meyer. This was about one-half mile east and about one-half mile north of Sharon Springs.

     A bond for the cemetery was defeated on January 22, 1893. A meeting was held on January 15, 1894 to start proceedings to condemn the ground one mile north of Sharon Springs. Clay Bouslog, Lester Perry and H. T. Black were appointed to hire a lawyer. The ground was purchased from the Union Pacific Railroad Company for $240.00 on july 27, 1894. Deed was recorded on October 30. 1894.

                  The bodies were moved to the new cemetery except for Sara Baldwin who had died of  a
        contagious disease.
