Historical Background

 

Ubezhdeniye Cemetery was established in 1905 by the Doukhobors of Ubezhdeniye village. After the abandonment of the village in 1909, the cemetery continued to be used by local Doukhobors until the 1950's. Located in the Linden Valley School District, it also came to be known as Linden Valley Cemetery. It is no longer in active use and is badly overgrown. It is privately owned.  

 

Layout

 

The cemetery is approximately one acre in size and is unenclosed. There is dense scrub and brush throughout. The cemetery contains approximately 105 interments in a single section comprised of seven rows facing east-west. Over half the graves (87) have no marker, however, many of the mounds are still clearly visible. We have used death certificates to identify seven of these. The remaining 80 or so unmarked graves are unidentified. With respect to graves with markers, the markers are typically plain, upright granite or marble headstones.

Driving Directions

 

To access the cemetery, travel west from Kamsack on Highway No. 5 for 3 3/4 miles (6 km). Then turn north and continue on the gravel road for one mile (1.6 km). The cemetery is on the east side of the road in the north-west corner of the quarter section. This cemetery is on private property and permission to access should be obtained by the owners.
