In 1932, Frank GELSTON of Elk City wrote a letter to Clarence RECKMEYER of Fremont, NE regarding the cemeteries. (in part) The Old Cemetery seemed to be the burying place for early pioneers going west. I think the land was government land or else owned by speculators and people just got started burying there and kept it up without any restrictions. No records were kept, if the people marked the grave with a stone that was the only record. People just went and dug graves where ever it suited them. Many of the people who had family or friends in the old cemetery had them moved to the new one. There are a few left but no one knows where they are as the stones are broken
