Gravestone Inscription: Gumaer, Franklin Peter 1863 – 1906
Gravestone is also inscribed with his wife’s name and presumably their child.
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 March 9, 1906 page 1.
The death of Frank Gumaer at Alma was reported yesterday. The news was received too late for the Flume to obtain full particulars. Pneumonia is given as the cause.
