Notes: Alma Baptist Cemetery does not ask families to participate in annual clean up or the ongoing maintenance of the cemetery. In 2016 the Sexton said they wanted to to place a memorial where the church used to stand, and hopefully also defray some of the maintenance costs.

The church was removed a few years ago leaving an open prairie. We would like to put up a granite stone identifying the cemetery and would appreciate donations to help pay for the memorial and ongoing upkeep expenses. If families wanted to donate they could send checks to the Alma Baptist Cemetery Fund at my address as I am a co-signer of the bank account.

The address would be:
