|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
The original village of Inland, Nebraska was established by the Burlington Railroad in early summer 1871 on the Southwest quarter of Section 12, Township 7, Range 9, (known as Blaine township), Adams county, NE. This is 3 1/2 miles west of the present site of Inland, Clay county, Nebraska.
The original Inland cemetery was established south of the village and just south of the Burlington Railroad tracks.
Hastings was established in 1874 and grew rapidly. Because of its proximity to Hastings, the village of Inland was moved east into Clay county. Scott cemetery was established west of the present Inland in 1880. Some persons were exhumed from Old Inland or Halloran cemetery and moved into the Scott cemetery, but not all.
My grandmother, Leona Bassett Kline (whose grandmother is still buried in the Old Inland cemetery) remembered from her youth in the early 1900s grave markers and a cast iron fence at the cemetery.
The Old Inland cemetery was never a legally deeded cemetery and unfortunately the land owner did not honor the old cemetery. Today it is a plowed field.
