St. Joseph’s Cemetery (Bancroft)

Tracing the “Kelly” surname back from my particular branch of the family tree will lead you to St. Joseph’s Catholic Cemetery near Bancroft, Nebraska. This is where my great-great grandfather is buried, along with several other family members. Images for all headstones at this cemetery can be found on the NebraskaGravestones.org website.

    Since Michael was a part of Bancroft’s history and little bit of mine, I wondered why his relatives did not have his death year (1921) inscribed on the gravestone!
