This cemetery is located on First Street, west of Kinsley approximately 1/2 mile, on the south side of the road.
This is the first Kinsley cemetery, which is a very old cemetery, established in 1878. I found it in poor repair. There were some stones with new temporary metal markers embedded in them, giving the name of the deceased, birth and death years and the funeral home that furnished them. Many stones are missing and those which remain are few and have been repaired as best as possible.
This is a complete list of all existing and legible stones and markers found when I canvassed I this cemetery on Oct 28, 2003.- Linda Brower

(It is possible that there was another child listed on the back of the stone, but if so it has worn off and unable to read.)
