  • The directory at the Lenora South Cemetery contains a listing of names in all the cemeteries in the Lenora Cemetery District.
  • The Lenora East Cemetery is the older cemetery and often families have members buried in both.
  • The Prairie Gem Cemetery is located 7 miles north and 1/12 miles east of Lenora.

Obituaries

A result of all the research has been the beginning of a compilation of obituaries and the effort to also list persons who have been buried but for whom there is currently no stone marking the grave.  Sometimes the information has come from family members and sometimes it comes from burial permits, funeral records and obituaries.
 
Only those individuals with two pieces of corroborating evidence as listed as an unmarked burial.  This research has led to several stones being placed by family members who wished to honor those ancestors.
