To reach this cemetery drive 6 mile south & then ½ mile west of Pratt Kansas.
It was called the Burbank Cemetery in the early days. It has been abandoned now for many years. There was a town called Ludwick which was located at the six mile corner south of Pratt. It was a stage stop on the old Sun City Trail.
Several others who had been buried in this cemetery were later moved to other cemeteries. Mr. & Mrs. Burbank were moved from Fairview to the Greenlawn Cemetery. Several members of the Trout family were moved from Fairview to the Coats Cemetery as well as several babies of the Stoops family.
In 1976 I went to the cemetery and collected records from the sexton and some from headstones. This transcription includes all known headstones up to the year 1976.
