Inscription
The cemetery roster reveals countless hardships. Nine of the people interred in this cemetery succumbed to typhoid, and four to consumption (tuberculosis). Two each died by fever, drowning, freezing, bronchitis, pneumonia, meningitis and gunshot wounds. Scurvy, suicide, heat, stomach disorder, and alcohol-related accident, and complications during childbirth each claimed another life. Three infants died before reaching three months of age.


Shortly before abandonment in 1889, the remains buried here were moved to Custer National Cemetery in Montana.
