Welcome to the TNMCorps Q&A community!

So NMC folks, this challenge is turning out to be quite a challenge! The 1909 Plat maps you can see online in the kansasmemory project for the County show a TON of unnamed cemeteries scattered across the landscape. I think many are listed in the County Historical Society files, but as of right now, there isn't a way to match locations to names. I know the powersthatbe in the USGS want the cemeteries currently in the map checked as the first prioirity, but I am more concerned about completeness. I'm happy to scan the old topos and plat maps and add "unknown cemetery" to locations that could later be matched to names, or create a pile of unlocated cemetery points with names without location. In either case, I don't think it's possible to finish this particular challenge and hope it doesn't get taken off the "to do" list Queenofthedead

Hello! Thanks for doing the research for this challenge! The Geographic Names Information System (GNIS) requires names, so we need to have the names in order to show the cemeteries on our maps. Please keep your research and perhaps someone at the County Historical Society would be willing to finish the research you've started, and then we can add the cemeteries.
