Saint Ambrose Cemetery
Deadwood, Lawrence County, South Dakota

Burnam Hill, Deadwood, SD

Lat: 44° 22' 56"N, Lon: 103° 43' 36"W

Transcribed by Maggie Rail, Nov 23, 2002, last edited Sep 19, 2014 [mrail@asisna.com]. Total records = 260.

To reach the cemetery drive north on the main street of Deadwood (Hwy 14) to north end of town to Burnam Hill where you turn left. Continue to the top of the hill, turning left just before you reach the top.

This is west of Hwy 14 in north part of town of Deadwood, in the Highland neighborhood. The land was deeded to the Saint Ambrose Catholic Church in 1883, although there are burials in the cemetery as early as 1878.

A fire destroyed the records for the cemetery in 1935, and since then an effort has been made to restore them as much as is possible. Work was done researching old church records, death and other records for names which were lost. A good record has been kept since.

The cemetery became more than the church could afford to maintain, so it remained unmaintained for a number of years. Recently there has been an effort to raise funds to restore Saint Ambrose. I saw evidence of the work when I was reading it. I personally think it is a beautiful cemetery and a nice location.

I have not been able to acquire the old records to add to this headstone reading. If and when I do I will make those additions to this work.

I visited and surveyed this cemetery on Sep 22, 2002, with Loyd and Pat Nielson as my escorts.

Note: I have become aware that Find-A-Grave is now copying my hard work and publishing it on their website without my permission, plus the first photo.
