|A view of block 29 including Beistline and Hunt tombstones|
The cemetery is quite large, but they have an excellent online capability to search Blair City Cemetery Burials. The blocks are well marked with metal posts and painted stencils, so the online database and markers made it easy to search. Without this capability, I doubt I would have even attempted a foot search. It seemed like a very genealogy friendly cemetery.

This is the list I photographed. I will post photos in upcoming tombstone Tuesday posts.
- Hunt, Samuel, (1832-Sep 15, 1923), Block: 29 Lot: 9 Grave: 11. My 3rd great grandfather.
- Hunt, Sarah A. (Beistline)(Mar 16, 1846-Mar 2, 1889), Block: 29 Lot: 9 Grave: 10. My 3rd great grandmother.
- Beistline, J. R. (1821-Apr 16, 1904), Block: 29 Lot: 2 Grave: 8, My 4th great grandfather.
- Beistline, Susanah, (1821-Dec 30, 1885), Block: 29 Lot: 2 Grave: 7, My 4th great grandmother.
- Johnson, Jorgon Peter, (Mar. 27, 1851-Feb. 2, 1945), Block: 7 Lot: 9 Grave: 8. My 3rd great grandmother.
- Johnson, Hannah (Branshus), ( Nov. 19, 1854-Sep. 24, 1908), Block: 7 Lot: 9 Grave: 9. My 3rd great grandmother.
- Johnson, Martha, Block: 7 Lot: 9 Grave: 7, Listed in the cemetery database, but apparently there is no tombstone. This may have been a daughter of J.P. Johnson.
- Johnson, Elizabeth Greeno, (1868-May 5, 1962), Block: 7 Lot: 9 Grave: 5. Unknown relationship, possibly sister or another wife of Jorgon Johnson?
I collected the following GPS coordinates:
- N41 33.051, W96 7.105 was the position of Samuel Hunt's tombstone.
- N41 33.019, W96 7.108 was the position of J.P. Johnson's tombstone.
These are as close as google maps will let me place the marks. Maybe I'll figure out how to put the marks in the correct place, but these will have to do for now.
