Southeastern Colorado: Searching for Family Roots
Tobe, CO
Where Hwy 160 bends, look for the only tree in sight for miles.
Parker Cemetery
Road 169 - West of Tobe
Couple miles north take the pasture trail on your right
and head towards the windmill.
Look for the cemetery on the little hill.
How did this cemetery end up being in the middle of a pasture?
(Two headstones belong to the Parker family.)
Old irises still bloom around the graves.

These cacti along with pear cacti were growing throughout the cemetery.

Thank you to the 4-H Club for volunteering a day to clean up the 2 cemeteries before we arrived.  And a special thanks to Kay, my long lost college friend, who just happens to live in Kim nowadays!!
