Chester (Conover) Cemetery
Jefferson County,

Chester Cemetery is located in rural countryside near Chester School, in Sarcoxie Township, Jefferson County, Kansas, on Republic Road, approx. 8 miles north of Lawrence, Douglas County, Kansas.

An actively-used graveyard in bygone years, Chester Cemetery in modern times has numerous unmarked graves. Without regular cemetery maintenance, some tombstones (wooden and sandstone) unfortunately deteriorated, crumbled or sank into the soil, after constant exposure to weathering elements and to mischievous vandalism.
