Elko County

This is absolutely beautiful country and a massive Elko County cattle ranching area. A few of the burials that I could find information for include:

Horace Owen Agee (1901-1901): Son of Horace and Esther (Etta) Agee. Horace Sr. was a prominent rancher in the Clover Valley. In 1901, he purchased the original Warm Creek Ranch. This ranch was the original ranch established in 1858 by Albert Haws. Haws was an outlaw who murdered a fellow rancher named Dunn in 1869. Haws would go on to kill a U.S. Marshal in Utah and wound an Elko County Deputy. He was later tracked down and killed by a Sheriff's Posse.

William Duval (1851-1925): William was listed as a Clover Valley farmer and stock raiser. He came to Nevada and Elko County from Western Canada in 1868.

Rachael Esther Gibbs (1901-1902); Daughter of W.B. Gibbs. W.B. Gibbs was listed as a Clover Valley farmer and stock raiser. He came to Nevada in 1860 and Elko County in 1869 from Vermont.

Martin Scherff (1834-1900) and Anna Scherff (1841-1910): Martin was listed as the proprietor of a hotel in Wells. He came to Nevada and Elko County in 1872 from Germany.

Geraldine Schoer (1847-1905), Mattie Schoer (1883-1894) and Henry Schoer (1878-1899): Geraldine is the Wife of C.B. Schoer. My guess would be that Mattie and Henry were his children. C.B. Schoer was listed as a Clover Valley farmer. He came to Nevada and Elko County in 1868 from Germany.

Payiene Weeks (1861-1930) and S.C. Weeks (1842-1925): S.T. Weeks was listed as a Clover Valley farmer. He came to Nevada in 1865 and Elko County in 1869 from Ohio.

Abner Wiseman (1830-1915): Abner was listed as a Clover Valley farmer and stock raiser. He was a member of the Masonic Lodge. He came to Nevada and Elko County in 1867 from Kentucky. See the pages on this website regarding the Spruce Mountain area. Abner and Isaac Wiseman were original and long- standing players in that mining district. A younger Abner Wiseman and Isaac Wiseman are both buried in the Clover Valley South Cemetery

John C. Wood (1828-1919 or 1829-1919. Two markers with different dates): John was listed as a Clover Valley farmer and stock raiser who came to Nevada in 1862 and Elko County in 1870 from Indiana.
