Whitney Cemetery
Dawes County,

The Whitney Cemetery was established in 1905 on land donated to the Whitney United Methodist Chruch [current name] by the McCafferty family

Elizabeth McCafferty was the first person burried in the Whitney Cemetery.

In the 1920s, a number of graves were moved to the Whitney Cemetery from an original cemetery a short distance (less than a mile) west of Whitney, Nebraska.

Further comment:

A very attractive picture of this entrance can be viewed at http://www.whitneyreflections.org/html/cemetery.html
The whitneyreflections website also includes a different set of photographs of the gravestones in the Whitney Cemetery.
