Kansas Death Records


Fort Leavenworth Military Prison Cemetery
Fort Leavenworth, Leavenworth County, Kansas

"This half acre cemetery was established in 1884 for inmates who died or were executed. they had no next of kin, or the next of kin refused the remains. On the back row are the graves of 14 German prisoners of war who were hanged in 1945 for crimes committed while POWs. No family members are buried here."

What makes us Different?

Single-sourced, not crowd-sourced

Each transcription we publish comes from a single-source, be it the cemetery office, government office, church office, archived document, a tombstone transcriber. Other websites already do an excellent job of crowd-sourcing a single cemetery together. But genealogists also need to see the original records from a single source. That's what we offer.
