Alma Cemetery
Park County,

Gravestone Inscription: Our Darling
Ida May Snell
May 14, 1903
July 26, 1906

Note: 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 August 3, 1906, page 1.


Ida May Snell, the little three-year old daughter of Ed Snell, who died in Denver last week, was laid to rest at the Buckskin cemetery Monday. The little child was beloved by everyone and great sympathy and esteem was shown the bereaved family by the large cortege of mourners and friends who followed the little one to her early grave.
Most all the relatives of the Snell family arrived for the funeral; Curley Findley and wife, uncle and aunt of the child from Florence and Denver, Mrs. Mary Brennan from Walsenburg and Mrs. Christina Brennan and daughter, Grace Evans, of Denver.
