Maplewood Memorial Lawn (AKA Maplewood or Memorial Lawn) Cemetery
Lyon County,
Kansas

Maplewood cemetery was so named September 28, 1869 following years of
inactivity and a civil war. It was readied for selling plots with an onslaught of sales August 2, 1870. The west half of Block 9 was set aside for a "Potters Field", and burials list over 600 names of people buried in that section. For these, no stones mark the graves.
Maplewood is the older cemetery with an old soldiers plot "soldiers acre", where many veterans of the Civil War are buried."
Maplewood Cemetery is now jointed with Memorial Lawn Cemetery and the cemeteries are under private ownership.
