Nepesta Cemetery is all that remains of the stage stop and post office
(1876-1929) of the same name. The first know burials were the six Erdman
childern, all of whom died from diphtheria in March 1879, but there were
probably a few early burials at this location. The cemetery is located on US
Highway 50 about 25 miles (more or less) east of Pueblo, and sits off the south
side of the highway a couple hundred yards or so.
A complete index of the cemetery can be found at www.geocities.com/Heartland/Shores/7169/CEM_Nepesta.html
