Geophysical Investigations of the Youst Cemetery (25HM21), Hamilton County, Nebraska

Author(s): Steven L. De Vore

Year: 2007


The geophysical survey of Youst Cemetery (25HM21) in Hamilton County, Nebraska, was conducted between April 25 and April 26, 2006, by Midwest Archeological Center archeologist Steven De Yore and Save the Youst Cemetery Project volunteers Robert Hunt, Judy Schoch, Myron Peters, Dick Schoch, Dallas Moore, and Mary Ann Moore. The geophysical survey was conducted at the request of Nebraska State Historical Society Archeological Division staff to provide geophysical data on the presence of unmarked graves at the Youst Cemetery near Hampton, Nebraska. A concern of the descendants was the probability of unmarked graves within the cemetery boundary. Although numerous grave markers appear to be in their original setting, many of the broken grave markers had been removed from their original locations and stacked in various places within the cemetery. Others are lying flat on the ground. Several grave stone bases lacked the upper portion of the marker and also appeared out of place with other intact markers.
