Note: The Alma cemetery and Buckskin cemetery are one in the same. The cemetery was originally called the Buckskin cemetery because it was located 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.
Mrs. Letta Vanepps (sic) died at her home at Alma last Sunday and was buried in the cemetery there on Tuesday, Rev. Dudley conducting the funeral services.
Mrs. Van Epps was the wife of E.E. Van Epps and had many friends who are grieved to learned of her untimely death, she having only recently passed her fortieth birthday. Besides her husband, she leaves two daughters, three sons, father, mother and one sister. The Flume extends sympathy to the bereaved ones.
