El Cado Cemetery

Peru, Kansas

El Cado Cemetery is located south of Peru and Niotaze, Kansas. It is very close to the Oklahoma border and west of Caney. Here is a map of southeastern Chautauqua County, Kansas. The red X marks the location of the cemetery. Be prepared to drive on several miles of unpaved roads. It's worth the drive. The cemetery sits on a hill with beautiful old cedar trees and a scenic view of many miles of prairie. The wind always seems to blow.

Here are some photographs from El Cado Cemetery. Click on each small photo to see a larger view.

The Grey Marker to the right of the cedar tree is for my GG Grandparents, William and Nancy Marlow (looking northeast).

Here is another view taken during the summer 2001.

Grave of William and Nancy Marlow

Looking east. Right marker is for August and Eva Marlow. The marker on the left is for Eva's mother, Sarah Darnall, 1860 -1923.

(Note - Sarah's grave marker gives the spelling - Darnell, but this is apparently an error. Descendants say that the spelling is Darnall)
