To reach this cemetery from Rushmore drive west on 260th Street for two miles, turn left or south onto Erickson Avenue and continue for 5 miles. The cemetery will be on your left or south side of the road at the bend in the road just before the intersection with 330th Street.
Sunrise Cemetery was established in 1881 and is situated just north of the county line in the Little Rock area on a patch of virgin prairie. It is no longer active and has few remaining monuments or markers to identify the burials sites.
This small cemetery has never been identified with any church and there have been no burials here since 1900. It is now part of the county parks.
The names were taken from a board that has been placed at this burial site, with the names of those who are known to be buried here. There may be others, which I would be happy to add if anyone knows of one that is missing.
I transcribed this on Nov 25, 2007 from sign at the cemetery.- Gary Boomgaarden
