Burdette Cemetery - Washington County, CO


We’ve added nine new cemeteries to the gallery, from our recent trip out to Washington and Logan Counties.

Sterling was a real revelation for us – expansive, lush, lots of mature trees amazing stones. We have a few more in the vicinity to visit, so we’ll probably go back.

The smallest we saw this trip was Curtis, really only four stones and an empty fenced plot set in about an acre of land, way out in the wilds of Washington County (northeast Colorado.) The listing for it on the USGenWeb Archives lists three stones, but there is a fourth we found near the south border of the cemetery, a member of the Meenan family associated with the two stones at the east end of the cemetery. First name and DOD are illegible. The identified stones mark burials from 1894 to 1907.

Merino was the last one we hit on this trip – a scratchy little plot south of Sterling, and neither of us felt very comfortable there.

You might check out the shots from Akron; see if you can spot the gravestone typo.
