To reach the Ottmar Cemetery from I-90 drive east on the Wheeler Road, through the town of Wheeler. Just after you cross over the big irrigation canal turn left/north, continue on this paved road all the way. It will turn east after about 1 mile. Continue on for about 1 mile more and it will turn left/north up a long hill. At the top you will see the cemetery in the southeast corner of the intersection of PNE and 8NE.

This cemetery is referred to by local residence as the Old Keller Cemetery. The cemetery began when a Mr. Ottmar donated 1 acre of land to the Evangelical Church in Ruff about 1910 after losing their children at an early age. The Keller family also lost children a few years after that.

The cemetery sits on a small hill, with farmland surrounding it. There is not a lot of care given to the burial sites, and I easily could have missed one of the markers. Some areas were very well maintained however. It gets care a couple times a year all by volunteer. If oftener the families maintain their sections.

I read this cemetery on May 21, 2005, using my digital camera. This includes all existing stones and markers to that date.
