Bethel Cemetery
Edwards County, Kansas

Lat: 37° 44' 04"N, Lon: 99° 24' 47"W
South Brown Twp, R19W Sec 33

Contributed by Linda Brower, Feb 02, 2006 [ltbrower@yahoo.com]. Total records = 198.

To reach this cemetery from Greensburg, take Hwy 54 west 6 miles and then north 10 miles on 17th Ave. It is just north of the intersection of 17th Ave and A Street.

The Bethel Cemtery is located in rural Edwards County, Kansas, on the Kiowa-Edwards County line. Judging from the existing stones, it appears to have started in the late 1800s and is still used occasionally today.

This is a complete list of all existing and legible stones and markers found when I canvassed I this cemetery on May 17, 2003.
