Cemeteries: Kennedy Burial Site (abandoned)

alt=""

alt=""An early cemetery was located on the Samuel Kennedy homestead on SW 29-6-4w, near where the Missouri Trail crossed the Boyne River. The first recorded burials were in 1875 when two of the Kennedy children died. In the same year, Mrs. John McCullough and her daughter, Mary, were buried there after succumbing to typhoid fever. Names of other families who used the cemetery were: Stewart, Olson and Moyle.

The last burial at the site was in 1889. In later years, grave markers began to crumble into the river. The markers were retrieved, stored in the Carman Granite workshop for some years and finally placed in Greenwood Cemetery on the Kennedy grave.
