Fowler Cemetery
Fowler, Otero County

Tombstone Photographs

The Fowler Cemetery is located about a half mile east of Fowler on the north side of Highway 50 just across the railroad tracks. While the Fowler community was founded before 1882, the cemetery wasn't established until 1897. The cemetery has been owned by the town of Fowler since 1920.

Unless otherwise specifically credited the photographs in this portion of the archives were contributed by Shirley Evans who conducted a photographic survey of the cemetery headstones.

Other Fowler Cemetery photographs were contributed by:

Notice for viewers.

I have tried to remove dates of birth for people who are still living from the index. Since I don't have any other clues, I used the year 1920 as an arbitrary year of birth to divide those probably still living and those probably not. I am listing only the year of birth and death in the index unless the stone is hard to read.

As of June 5th I have completed the 2 CDs, uploaded and indexed 2068 of Shirley's photographs. When you browse the listing you will find that there are still some 240 tombstones that Shirley indexed that are not still linked. That simply means that I have not yet received those photographs.
