Introduction ...

Since our focus is on geography, we don't have any burial or interment information. Nor do we have any contact information for the Prairie Round Cemetery. For information of that nature, we suggest the Find-A-Grave<1> website: The Prairie Round Cemetery (FAG ID #2154040)

We have organized this page based upon a problem that we had while working on our own genealogy. We found an ancestor that we believed to have been buried in one cemetery was actually buried elsewhere. We discovered that his burial had been refused at the last moment and the family had scrambled to make new arrangements. By looking at nearby cemeteries, the surrounding communities and in newspapers of the period, we were finally able to locate his burial site.

<2>An 'estimated' location is one where we have been unable to verify its accuracy, but are confident that we have placed the marker within a few hundred feet of the actual location. Typical reasons for being unable to verify a location is that it might be either overgrown or on private property. A physical visit will probably be needed to verify the location.
