Mount Calvary/Prairie City Cemetery Transcription
Mount Calvary/Prarie City Cemetery

Photographed and transcribed by Jane Owens and Johnna Quick 12 August, 2004

We drove to Baldwin City, Kansas on the off chance that I might locate 
my GGGGrandfather Arcene Jardon's grave there.  Luck was on our side.  
I not only located him but his parents as well, along with his 
brother.  This cemetery was so amazing, so I am also including pictures 
of some of the beautiful monuments.  The complete transcription is 
below the photos.



Baldwin City, Douglas County, Kansas
Monument for Xavier and Elese Jardon Xavier Jardon Born in France 4-30-1822 11-8-1890 Elese Jardon Born in Switzerland 4-13-1829 9-26-1912 Monument for Celestin and Francis Jardon Celestin Jardon Born 11-10-1818 Died 9-27-1863 Aged 44 years 9 months 17 days **Celestin Jardon was the first person buried at Mt. Calvary Cemetery** Francis wife of C Jardon Born 4-16-1818 Died 1-9-1889 Aged 71 years 8 months 24 days May they rest in peace *Celestin and Francis are the parents of Arcene Jardon and my GGGGGrandparents* This is the original headstone for Celestin Jardon. It reads the same as the larger monument Arsine Jordon *should be Arcene Jardon* Company D 12th Kansas Infantry Harriett E. Wife of Arcene Jardon Born in Salisbury Connecticut July 21, 1853 October 6, 1916 Her footstone reads: Our Darling Mother This is the headstone of Harriett E. Jardon. Arcene Jardon's wife. She is not buried in Mt. Calvary. She is buried in Maple Hill Cemetery Wyandotte County, Kansas. When facing Arcene's grave to the right there are several empty plots beside him. I believe he planned on his family being buried beside him. So I decided to go ahead and reunite Arcene and Harriett even if it is only on a website.
