Historical Note: First burial here was in 1939. Within the fenced cemetery a memorial has been erected in the center. On the south facing wall, it reads: “In Memory of our Deceased Brothers and Sisters.” A bronze plaque on the east side reads: “This Memorial Contains the Names of All Known Children who were residents of the Rebekah-I.O.O.F. Home.” There are 219 names and each name is a separate bronze plate. These names are listed in an article, “Residents of the Rebeka-I.O.O.F. Home,” page 74, Kansas Kin quarterly, Vol. XXXVIII, No. 4, November 2000, published by the Riley County Genealogical Society.
