Gravestone Inscription: There is no gravestone; a Funeral Home Marker bears the hand-written name of “Judge Newhause.”
Note: There are several different spellings of the last name, to include Neuhaus, Newhause and Newhouse.
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.

Judge R.F. Newhaus Dead.
Judge Newhaus of Alma died suddenly last Saturday morning about 8 o’clock, while sitting in his office chair. Since the death of his mother some months ago, Judge Neuhaus has been continuously under the influence of strong drink and his sudden death can be attributed to no other cause.
He was 59 years of age and was born in Darmund, Westphalia, Germany. He came to America with his mother and sister, locating in Wisconsin. In 1882, the family came to Alma, where he has since resided.
Judge Neuhaus was a man of more than ordinary ability, having a fairly good education in German and English and also had a good musical education.
The remains were prepared for burial by Undertaker O’Brien of this place. The funeral services were held at the home Monday afternoon at 2:00 o’clock, conducted by Rev. Walder, after which the body was laid to rest in the Alma cemetery beside his mother.
Judge Neuhaus possessed many friends in Alma and over Park county and will be greatly missed by them and also by the readers of the Flume, he having been the regular Alma correspondent for a great many years and was always faithful to his last.
