The Farnam, Nebraska Cemetery is located immediately southwest of Farnam in the Northwest quarter of Section 1, Township 8 North, Range 26 West of the 6th P.M. in Frontier County, Nebraska.
Ordinance No. 66 of the Farnam Municipal Code (Vol. I, Supplement I, 1938) established the Cemetery Board. The Cemetery Board is responsible for the entire control and management of the cemetery, including maintaining lot ownership records.
The first parcel was deeded to the Cemetery Association by Clebert E. and Adeline Rice in 1891. Additional tracts were added in 1903, 1904 and 1940. Burials were made prior to 1891 when the land was owned by Jeremiah Walker (1887 to 1888) and Eugene Wood (1888 to 1890). The earliest date of death on existing tombstones is that of Hannah A. (Thompson) Owen: April 2,1887. (Based on information published in the Farnam history book: From These Beginnings, We Grew, 1982).
