The beautiful iron gate was created by Paul Purvis, while his mother, Frances Purvis, dedicated many hours and money to upgrade the stones in the 1970s.
Frances’ father, Martin Luther Jones, got the cemetery started in 1912 when his son Chester died. The land was owned by James S. Ewalt who had a tragic loss earlier when a car rolled on a bridge and he lost his wife and daughter. He deeded the land to the Bull Creek Cemetery Association in 1922.
Financial support remains the responsibility of the families.
Records published here were acquired from the Riverside Cemetery District in Cody, WY, using information compiled by Betty Marie Daniels in August 2009.
