To reach this cemetery as you are driving north on Hwy 42, take a left onto Broome road when you reach the community of Melba. You will immediately pass a church and cemetery on your left. Continue for about 1/4 mile and the cemetery will be on the south side of the road.

I do not know the name of this cemetery so have named it after the road. If anyone knows it's name, please contact me.

This cemetery is relatively small and is fairly well maintained, The first recorded burial here was in October of 1904, and is still active so far as I know, There are two children's graves that completely lack a marker, There are probably others here that are unmarked.

This listing was made from readings I acquired on Jul 14, 2005, when I visited the cemetery and copied all the headstones.

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.
