Alma Cemetery
Park County,

Gravestone Inscription: SEELY George B. Seely 1830 -1901
Mary L. Seely 1830 -1910

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 July 26, 1901, page 3.


Geo. B. Seely, one of our oldest and most respected citizens, died Sunday evening after an illness of only two days, of heart failure. He was stricken Friday evening while sawing wood near his residence. He was carried in the house and Dr. Moulton summoned. It was at first thought he would recover, but the hope proved to be futile. Mr. Seely came here in the early 80’s and engaged in a general store business which he conducted for a number of years. He was 72 years of age and leaves a widow to mourn his loss.
