Cemetery notes and/or description:
Fisher Farm Cemetery was a family cemetery. The farm of Willard Fisher and his wife, Christina McClure, was located in Sarpy County in the Northeast Corner of Section 20, Township 14, Range 13. The family cemetery was located about a half mile from the farmhouse. There are approximately 25 known members of the Fisher family buried at the Fisher Farm Cemetery, but only six or seven headstones exist today.

On 1 Nov 1883, Willard and his wife deeded one acre of land to Congregation Bennea Israel. This land was part of the Fisher family farm. A later deed, dated 1 April 1901, transferred the property from Congregation Bennea Israel to Congregation Beth Hamedrosh Hagadol (B.H.H.) There are two sections to this cemetery. The older section is segregated by gender and age. In one row adult males were buried side by side in the order of death. In the next row adult females were buried in the same manner. Most of the children were buried in separate rows. In the newer section, families are usually buried together. B.H.H. is the largest of the four cemeteries.

On 6 Jun 1901 Christina Fisher, daughter Inez and husband Theodore Morning, deeded a small part of their land to Marie Hrabik. This land adjoins the old Fisher Farm Cemetery to the west. There are only two burials on this land, known as Hrabik Cemetery; Vincent and Marie Hrabik, natives of Czechoslovakia.

Bnai Abraham Cemetery is also located on the same grounds as Fisher's Farm. The deed was signed on 9 Dec 1901 and conveyed 2/5 acre from Marie and Vincent Hrabik to Congregation Share Zion. A later deed, dated 9 Sep 1909, transferred ownership to Chevra B'nai Yisroel. A third deed, dated 6 Jan 1915, transferred ownership to Bnai Abraham Society of South Omaha. There are seven rows of graves in the Bnai Abraham Cemetery.

Fisher Farm Cemetery, Hrabik Cemetery, and the two Jewish cemeteries Beth Hamedrosh Hagadol and Bnai Abraham, are collectively known as the Fisher Farm Cemetery. The cemeteries are located on 42nd Street, 1/2 mile south of Giles Road.
