The cemetery that serves the community of Hartline in Grant County sits on Highway 2 just south east of town which is located in the SE 1/4 of Sec 1 T25N R29E.
Hartline is a small farming community with roots deeply set in agriculture. Their cemetery is now funded primarily through private donations collected in an annual drive.
The cemetery is well cared for, about 2 acres, fenced and irrigated. There are 560 stones, but many more burials as many of those 560 represent two people. There are also 35 unmarked graves.
Posted on the north side of the maintainence shed is the listing of burials with lot and grave numbers. Sheila Poe of Hartline is the current secretary of the cemetery district.
Cemetery records were lost in a fire in 1931. At that time, the caretakers reconstructed the records as best as possible from memory, but some names could not be recalled for the unknown graves. These unmarked burials are presumed to be in the cemetery with no one left to give any information. Those having "*unmarked" following their entry are from this list the caretakers reconstructed from memory. If anyone has any information, please contact me.
Please note that this list is primarily a listing of gravestones, differences between what the stone says and what the records state is so noted. I walked this cemetery during the summer of 2001.
Abbreviations include: s/o=son of; d/o=daughter to; c/o=child of; w/o=wife of; h/o=husband of; w/=shares stone with; (maiden name); RB = record book; "direct quote"; m=married, date is mm/dd/yr. Data is first a listing of names found on stones at the cemetery and then additions such as middle name and location from the records.- Pat Rice
