Bradshaw Cemetery

This cemetery is located in Bradshaw, high on the hill overlooking the town on the right hand side as you go toward Raysal. It can be seen from Main street in Bradshaw. I copied this information on Aug. 13, 1993. There hasn't been anyone buried in this cemetery since 1992. Graves are listed from left to right starting at the top of the cemetery.
