Cemetery notes and/or description:
When the town of Blacktower, New Mexico faded away, the only thing left behind was the cemetery. The Blacktower Cemetery, located west of the Chavez West Housing edition near Cannon Air Force Base, near Clovis, New Mexico. Clovis Historian Harold Kilmer and members of the High Plains Historical Foundation has compiled a list of about 50 known burials at the cemetery, dating back to 1907. Don McAlavy, a member of the foundation, found most of the list of the known burials in the funeral records at Steed-Todd Funeral Home in Clovis. What makes Blacktower Cemetery unique is that research suggests two Civil War veterans are buried at the cemetery, Emmett Fulkerson, who died June 17, 1911, and William Brantley, who died Feb. 7, 1908. Aviators from the Cannon Air Force Base are working to restore the cemetery and are performing continued maintenance. From Liliana Castillo, Freedom New Mexico
