Frost Cemetery Clean-up Project

Sponsored by the Flint Hills Genealogy Society
Township 17S, Range 11E, Section 21
Road 270 and Road J, 1/2 mile north, 1/8 mile east, Lyon County, KS

About 25 members of the Flint Hills Genealogy Society and the community met on a beautiful Sunday afternoon, September 24, 2006, to clean and repair the Frost Cemetery in Lyon County, KS. We cleared out brush, vines, and small trees that were hiding the stones. I'd say 60% of the stones were broken or toppled. We fixed many of them on our first visit and will return on October 8th to finish.

While we did our best to put the cemetery back in it's original condition, it is possible that we placed one or more of the obelisks back with the names facing the wrong direction. We found at least 3 footstones buried right next to their stone. We left those footstones right next to the stone they were buried with. There was one stone and a few pieces that were found out of place along the fence. That stone was moved near other stones. Perhaps before the cemetery was fenced years ago, those stones were broken by cows and tossed out of the way. Due to stones laying on the ground, there were some names and dates that were not transcribed before. Those details were recorded and will be updated on the FHGS web page, as well as photos of each monument. Check http://www.rootsweb.com/~ksfhgslc/frostcem.html/
