Alma Cemetery
Alma, Catron County, New Mexico

Lat: 33° 22' 49"N, Lon: 108° 54' 05"W
T11S R20W SE¼ NW¼ SW¼ Sec 3

Contributed by Cheryl Harris, Nov 01, 2006, last edited May 07, 2007 [rich1223@comcast.net]. Total records = 198.

As there is no post office in Alma at the present time, using the Glenwood post office as the primary point of reference, go north on US 180 for 4 miles, at which point the road crosses Mineral Creek over a concrete bridge.  Shortly after crossing the bridge, go on a dirt road that turns off towards the east; travel for 1/2 mile to where another dirt road turns off to the north (left), crosses a cattle-guard, and curves around and up a small hill.  This road goes for 1/2 mile to the gate of the cemetery, which is located on the flat top of the hill, overlooking the town of Alma.

The town was established in 1881 and named after the wife of one of the original settlers. The names have been gathered from library records (which are constantly retreiving and transcribing) as well as books, mortuary records and census of the era.

I have completed transcribing this cemetery on Oct 31, 2006.
