Description: Tomlinson Cemetery is now an area where they grow prairie grasses. The earliest known burial is M. Kuder in 1841. The cemetery is currently on private property, permission is needed before visiting this cemetery.

Pictures: I visited this cemetery in March 2012, but I DID NOT get a chance to take pictures of every stone in this cemetery. With probable over 200 stones in this cemetery, and still high weeds & plenty of thorn bushes - The sun was going down and I did not have the time to search for every stone while I was there. I hope to visit the cemetery again where I can spend at least a few hours searching & photographing each stone.

Subject: Permission to visit cemetery

I finally found where my last Great Great Grandfather is buried, here in this cemetery with his infant son. Who do we have to contact for permission? I would like to visit and try to find stone. Their stones were read in 1957-58 by DAR but it was not presented in rows, just alphabetically.
Thank you for your help.
