To reach this cemetery from the corner of W. Pretty Prairie Road and South Lerado Road drive north onto South Lerado Road for 0.2 miles. The cemetery will be on the right or east side of the road.
"The Lerado Cemetery began in 1877 with one small grave, the infant daughter of J.F. Martins was buried on his homestead. A short time later another tiny grave was placed nearby, Olive Ely, daughter of M.S. Ely. the Martins and Elys were early settlers in this area. other stones appeared to mark the final resting place of both young and old, and the Lerado Cemetery Association was formed in 1885. Although this cemetery in located in south western Reno County many of the early Kingman County pioneers are buried here." - from cemetery sexton record book
