This is information about Los Alamosa Cemetery in Sierra County, New Mexico. This cemetery is under water about a mile from shore, Elephant Butte Reservoir. There were some burials here before they built the dam. We cannot find whether they moved them (surely they did?) or it was just flooded. The dam was built in the 1916.

Where does This Information Come From?
“I think it’s important that we disclose where this information comes from, as it is not just a transcription of previous records. Of the over 2200 burial sites in New Mexico, our group has walked 480 of them to date and continue to find and walk others. Due the difficulty in determining rows in many abandoned cemeteries, very few are listed here by actual row and grave numbers. Most are listed only alphabetically. Besides walking and photographing cemeteries, our listings come from death records, obituaries, death certificates, histories of towns, previous listings in the Genealogy library, etc. as well as family members.”
