FARMERS' VALLEY CEMETERY

The Farmers' Valley Cemetery, founded in 1876 on land donated by John Brown, is the final resting place of many pioneers of Hamilton County. On three sides winds the Big Blue River, along whose banks the first settlers in the county built their soddies and log houses.

Among the historic graves here are those of nine Civil War veterans; Marion Littlefield, killed by Indians at Pebble Creek; Mary Kaily and her child, frozen in the l873 Easter Blizzard; and Perry Reed, Nebraska State Senator.
