Cemetery records, such as tombstones and sexton’s records, have valuable information that they may give birth and death dates, age at death, name of spouse and children, a maiden name or, occasionally, a birthplace. Sometimes familiy members found no where else are found in these records.
Tombstones may have symbols or insignias indicating military service and social or religious affiliations which can lead to additional records and family history clues. It is important to look at surrounding tombstones because family members may also be buried nearby.
The Family History Library has cemetery and sexton records for Cheyenne. If the county is known, look under cemeteries records for that county.
