Kenosha County Cemetery
Pleasant Prairie, Kenosha County, Wisconsin

Lat: 42 32' 54"N, Lon: 87 54' 46"W
T1N R11E Sec 16

Submitted by John Hewes, Jul 08, 2003 [jahrn@hotmail.com]. Total records = 243.

To find the cemetery turn south off Highway 50, onto County Road "H" for about 1¼ mi. The cemetery will be on the east side of the road, near the power plant.

This cemetery is owned and maintained by the county of Kenosha Wisconsin. Burials occurred between the years of 1924-1972. If you plan to visit this cemetery, be extremely careful, as the ground is settling. It is not known as "pauper's". This is merely a description of the type of cemetery that it is.

Because only the indigent and unknown are buried here, only two styles of tombstones are found. Early stones (1924-about 1928) are engraved with name and date of death. Later stones (1928-1972) were pre-fabricated cement stones (produced in bulk). After the stone was set, a metal plate was attached to the stone with the name and date of death. Many of these plates are now missing.

In one corner of the cemetery, a line of unused stones remain. Although I did begin with a survey of the cemetery in May, 2003, this transcription is primarily based on actual burial records. The original records are held by the Kenosha County Clerk, Edna Highland. Special thanks are due to her office for providing copies from the record book. This project completed Jul 8, 2003.
