Gone and Mostly Forgotten: The Gunnison Boulevard/Riverside Cemetery

by Robert P. Easterly

We are pleased to be allowed to provide our members with the full version of Bob’s booklet, Gone and Mostly Forgotten: the Gunnison Boulevard Cemetery. Bob spent a great deal of his time recently uncovering the history and the names behind the “Boulevard/Riverside” Cemetery in Gunnison. What is left of this cemetery is on the grounds of the Gunnison-Crested Butte Airport. Bob has researched possible burials for this cemetery which has no headstones and will not be on Find-A-Grave or Billion Graves. The burials occurred between 1876 and 1884 in the Gunnison area. His publication has four appendices full of information about the people he found. See our November 2017 issue of The Colorado Genealogist for an excerpt and examples of the appendices’ entries.

Both a high and low resolution version are available. If you plan to read the newspaper clippings in Appendix C you will probably need the high resolution version.
