Welcome To Ford County, Kansas


Bucklin Journal, December 13, 1888

Cemetery Meeting.

A meeting of the citizens of this vicinity will be held at the Town Company's office on Saturday, December 22nd, at 8:30 p.m., to effect a permanent organization and take final notion on the proposition of J. W. Bradshaw.  This is a matter of great importance and we desire a full attendance.

By Order of Committee.


The necessity of a permanent burying place for our dead is felt by all.  Meetings have been held and several unsuccessful attempts have been made to secure suitable grounds.  At last the efforts of the committee seem likely to be rewarded.  A tract of land on the south side of J. W. Bradshaw's farm, about 80 rods east of his house, is now under consideration.  Mr. Bradshaw has made a liberal proposition which will probably be accepted as soon as some preliminary matters can be arranged.

The site is a beautiful one and commands an excellent view of town.  The ground slopes gently in three ways thus affording good drainage.  It is on a public road that is passable at all times and is a suitable distance from town.  This land poses many advantages and few disadvantages and we trust that it will be secured.

The committee desires and expects the hearty cooperation of the citizens of Bucklin and vicinity.
