Alma Cemetery
Park County,

Gravestone Inscription: James F. Dowd Born in County of Cavan Ireland Died Aug. 20, A.D. 1899 Aged 66 years

Note: The last name spelling on the gravestone (Dowd) and in the obituary (Doud) are different.

The Alma cemetery and Buckskin cemetery are one in the same. The cemetery was originally called the Buckskin cemetery because it was next to the original town of Buckskin Joe, now a ghost town. President Theodore Roosevelt approved the land grant for the cemetery to be used by Alma residents on 3/21/1902, Patent No. 1638.

Source: the following was taken from the Fairplay Flume Newspaper (Fairplay, Park County) dated May 25, 1899 page 2.


News was received Tuesday that James Doud, one of the oldest miners in the camp, died in a hospital in Denver. Mr. Doud has been sick for a long time. He was an ex-confederate soldier, having served through the whole war of the rebellion.
