Cemetery notes and/or description:
No tombstones found yet.

Green Mound cemetery is an abandoned cemetery. Nelson Township - North east 1.25 acres of NW 1/4 of section 23-6-2. This land was owned by Amandeus P. and his wife Laura M("Meheadable?) Burr before this land became property of the Cemetery Association. North west 1.25 acres of NE 1/4 of section 23-6-2. This land was owned by Joseph Jesse and his wife Nancy C. Knapp before this land became property of the Cemetery Association. Green Mound is on the south side of Oat Road between Road 220 & 230 Road - 2 miles east of Nelson Cemetery.

Several years back -- probably in the 1970's -- the stones were removed from this cemetery. None have been found as yet.

This information is from early records of the cemetery.

These names are in existing minutes of this cemetery association (1876-1879): W.H. Whipple, S.B. Ward, J.T. Jackman, T. McHenry, J. Heacock, H. Glasby, S. Farnam, W.S. Ward, S. Doran, J.J. Knapp, A.S. Thomas, H. Titterinton, J.E. Bean, and C.H. Glasby. (S. Doran is Samuel Doran from Elk Township, Cloud County, Kansas and he was the Cloud County surveyor at that time.)

Some of the area neighbors has said that there may be some of the tombstones from the cemetery in a ditch/creek in the section about a quarter of a mile from the cemetery. Other area neighbors have seen the tombstone in the south or southwest fence row. One known tombstone had the name of Beagle on it.
