Burlington Cemetery Burial Listings in Longmont, Boulder County, Colorado (online)
Information donated by Chrisy Griffith and Contributed for use by the USGenWeb Project. Chrisy has created an alphabetical listing of each burial in the Burlington Cemetery and at the end of the list added the Block and Lot number. From Chrisy's introduction: "This transcription of graves is a combination of walking through and copying information from the gravestones, looking at books at the library, and cross-referencing them with a list produced by Dwight E. Ward in 1987 and updated by the Longmont Genealogical Society in 1994. He based his records on maps, a list produced by Irene Hart Greenwood in 1971, another earlier list done by an unknown author and some additional research. Mr. Ward’s and Ms. Greenwoods lists can also be viewed at the Longmont Public Library. She also includes this helpful tip: If you go to Burlington Cemetery and try to locate a grave, a good hint for finding some of the hard-to-find ones is look for iris plants. These have been planted around many of the sites to make them easier to locate. Be sure and read the full introduction for other helpful ideas! Thank you Chrisy for all your work.
