TOWN OF METOMEN CEMETERIES
UNION PRAIRIE CEMETERY
Fond du Lac County, Wisconsin



Row and stone numbering is by section. Rows are numbered
from west to east; stones are numbered from south to north.

 

Union Prairie Cemetery is located in section 25 at the corner of County Highway T and Metovale Road, 1/2 mile east of the village of Brandon.. The current location is identified on the 1862 county plat map on land platted to G. Meader.

The following list was compiled March 28, 1998 by Bob, Kathy, and David Schuster without disturbing the ground around stones and without rubbing worn lettering. It may, therefore, not be entirely reliable.
