Lanesfield Cemetery (Lost)

Lost Cemetery

Center of Section 32, Township 14S, Range 22E

This cemetery was located on the north (rear) side of the Lanesfield school, near present day Edgerton. Though the cemetery was never marked on any Atlas, it is known through history of  Lanesfield and Edgerton, and through the Lanesfield School Museum. No listing of names of those buried has survived. The area is now part of a grown-over field, no headstones or other markers are visible, and the exact physical location is unknown.

When the town of Lanesfield moved to be on the railroad line and became Edgerton, some or all of the graves were moved to Edgerton. Many decades later a gravestone was recovered from the old cemetery site and is currently in the care of the Johnson County Museum.
