Mr Martin Barkman 1821-1894 settled in Jefferson County, Nebraska in Jul 1874. His Property was located at the present site of the town of Jansen. His wife Margaretha Reimer Barkman died in Sep shortly after they arrived from Russia. We(Mildred Wiebe Ediger) find no further trace of her elsewhere, so we conclude she was buried here, since this is the FIRST KNOWN MENNONITE CEMETERY for our people.
