Beowawe Indian Cemetery
Beowawe, Eureka County, Nevada

Lat: 40° 33' 25"N, Lon: 116° 26' 49"W

Contributed by Fred Kemmerle, Sep 10, 2004 [fwk12000@yahoo.com].Total records = 5.

The cemetery is 3.8 miles SE of Beowawe on a gravelled road and an additional 6 miles from the Beowawe exit (# 261) on Interstate 80.

Probably all those buried here were members of the Shoshone tribe. The cemetery is in poor condition and apparently still in use. I counted a total of 26 gravesites.

This record was compiled in Sep 2004 from all existing and legible grave markers. Some newspaper obituaries were used for further information.

What makes us Different?

Single-sourced, not crowd-sourced

Each transcription we publish comes from a single-source, be it the cemetery office, government office, church office, archived document, a tombstone transcriber. Other websites already do an excellent job of crowd-sourcing a single cemetery together. But genealogists also need to see the original records from a single source. That's what we offer.
