|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
Boston Mills/Cox Cemetery is off newly named highway 400 and 90th about 3 miles north of Riverton, Kansas.
This old cemetery is located southwest of the old Gulf Chemical plant. It is south off Boston Mills Road just west of an old railroad track. The entrance road is unmarked and goes into a field and finally ends up at the wooded entrance which is still unmarked. When John took the photo in 1984 the cemetery was intact although badly neglected. This has not yet changed.
It is located in Lowell Township and the Lowell Township Board has now been made aware that they are also responsible for it. The head stones date back to the 1870's with some broken that cannot be read. When it was last read, many years ago, they found approximately 12 head stones remaining.
