Wessington Cemetery
Although Wessington is in Beadle County, the cemetery is located to the west of town, across the N/S county-line road into Hand County. The cemetery is also in two sections, divided by an E/W township road....putting the south half of the cemetery in Hulbert township and the north half in Grand township, both in Hand County. You're confused now, too?

I've begun to transcribe & photograph this cemetery.   Please be patient.  This is a big job!

APRIL 6th UPDATE!! The 45 photos I have so far are now online! Click on the Tombstone & Cemetery Index link below and scroll list to Wessington Cemetery..
