While it is impossible to replicate the cemetery on the web, this is an attempt to give you an idea of how the graves are organized. If you have loved ones buried here, we hope you can find them. If unmarked graves are recognized, please let us know who they are.

The thumbnails you see here may connect, in the future, to larger views on the Nevada Tombstone Registry, thanks to Gerry Perry, Nevada Tombstone Project Manager. Take a look at the Rural Clark County Page, among others, on that historical preservation site. Brian McGee outlined the cemetery into rows during his survey in 2000, which can be read at the latter Tombstone page.

A & B rows

Hint: click on a Row to see the thumbnails of graves and on the thumbnail to see enlargement. If you are looking for a specific person, go to an Alphabetical Listing to find the name and locate the Row.

In accordance with Brian's outline, photos of graves in Row A and Row B can be seen starting left to right as occurs in actuality.

Scattered unknown graves are indicated in the East & South Fence areas.


Pictures were taken over Memorial Day week of 2007 then sent to Gerry Perry and documented in GS Cemetery07. There are suspicious looking graves where no dirt has been dug and we have had at least one hoax, based on this article. Please honor our dead and stop ludicrous day and/or night visits to our cemetery.
