Prairie Lawn Cemetery (Gorham Cemetery)
Russell County, Kansas

Homer Road and 175th Street, Gorham KS

Lat: 38° 52' 44"N, Lon: 99° 02' 20"W
Big Creek Twp, T11S R15W Sec 31

Contributed by Charma Craven, Feb 18, 2005 [ccraven54@cox.net]. Total records = 257.

To reach cemetery from Gorham, drive south on 175th street. The cemetery will be on the east side of the street just before you reach Homer Road.

This cemetery, which was established in the late 1800s, was originally called the Gorham Cemetery. Later it was deeded by Ed Gorham (founder of Gorham) to the Prairie Lawn Cemetery Association, who now owns and maintains the cemetery.

I walked and read this cemetery in the spring of 2004. It includes all existing and legible burial markers up to Jan 06, 2004.
