Cemeteries

Bramwell Cemetery - Find A Grave Website
Bramwell Cemetery - USGenWeb Archives, 2005 transcription
West of Emmett on Highway 52 about six miles, then south on Bowman Road, then west on S Slope about mile. (well-signed)

"Bramwell Cemetery had its beginnings in 1907. A smallpox epidemic took the life of a young mother, Elenor Ann Nelson Thornock. Her husband was quarantined to his home so Elenor's parents buried her on a gently rising hill not too far away without a funeral. After gaining his health, Mr. Thornock petitioned the city council members in Emmett to set the tract aside for use as a cemetery for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saint members. In 1908 President Calvin Coolidge deeded the land to the church. It remains property of the LDS Church to this day. It needs to be emphasized that one need not be a member of the church to be interred there." -- USgenweb archives introduction
