There were no railroads, no church cemeteries in the days when people
first came to this valley. There were no funeral homes, no neighbors
helped neighbors when a loved one died. When there was a death, the
burial was the next day.
When John Robert Little, the uncle of Bessie Gilbert, died he left his widow, Lillie, and four children. The oldest child was eleven years old. Lillie raised her family in the Howard Community, on the land homesteaded by the Littles.
Joseph H. Henderson who is buried in the Howard Cemetery is the kin of John Robert Little's wife.
There are several unnamed and unmarked graves in this cemetery. Only two graves have names and dates. There are no tombstones.
Information furnished by Mrs. Bessie Little Gilbert
Henderson, Joseph H. -
Little, John Robert - 1854-1914
