Contributed by Cheryl Harris, Sep 24, 2012, last edited Oct 24, 2012 [rich1223@comcast.net]. Total records = 60.

This cemetery is about 2 mi SW of Apache Creek at NW corner of NM 12 and B028.

The Apache Creek cemetery was established in 1900. There are several unmarked gravesites and many with illegible headstones as well as some only marked with a fieldstone or concrete square having no marking. Some in enclosed fences also with only an unmarked stone. It is not used for burial very often.

I have completed transcribing this cemetery in the summer of 2012 from records completed by the Tombstone Transcription Project in 2009.

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.
