Colorado County Cemeteries

Most of the information contained here is the result of the diligent work of Bill Stein, former director of the Nesbitt Memorial Library, and his volunteers in surveying cemeteries within the county.

There are direct links from this page to information, including directions and an up to date list of burials, for every known cemetery in the county. We appreciate John Konesheck's help in extracting the names of those buried from the Nesbitt Memorial Library's data. At the request of a patron, we have added the following designations: (W) all White or White/Hispanic burials; (B) all Black burials; and (M) mixed burials.

There are also lists of those believed to be buried in the county, but where the name of the cemetery is unknown (see Burial place unknown or Cremated).

Colorado County cemetery records are also available online at the Nesbitt Memorial Library web site in the form of an alphabetical listing of all known burials in the county.
