Flake (Flakes)  Cemeteries

 (see also BOULDIN - FLAKE)

   Please remember that many of the older cemeteries are located on private property. Please respect not only the cemetery but also the owner's rights. Always obtain permission to enter private property.

NOTE:  I only do transcribing and helping people with genealogical research.  I have nothing to do with the cemetery, so if you are looking for information on purchasing plots or rules and regulations of the cemetery, contact the caretaker or a local funeral home.


Locations of  Flake's cemeteries are shown separately:  NOTE!    There are two cemeteries shown below:

Travis-Davis Cemetery  formerly shown as   Flake Cemetery #1

From New Ulm, go east on 1094 for 4 miles.  Turn left on New Bremen road.  Go 3.2 miles to intersection. Turn left at intersection and go 1.6 miles.  Turn right at T and  go .1 mile to corner.  It is  on the right at the corner.

PLEASE CHECK the Cemetery Index page as the below table may not be complete.

To look for obits go to Bellville Public Library site and click on Newspaper as there is a wealth of information for obituaries and other records.

Thanks to Carolyn Zascoda for updates to these files. May 2020
