Colby (Morley) Cemetery, Washington County, Nebraska

Also known as Colley Cemetery. Some of the earliest dates found on stones in the Morley Cemetery are in the 1860's, about the time this general area was settled. The cemetery is only accessible over a dirt lane through a field, but at one time the county road went by the south edge of the cemetery. During the spring and summer of 1980, extensive work has been done, as the area had been in a "no maintenance" state for several years and trees and brush had taken over. The cemetery board will continue to do clean-up work and hopes to again use the cemetery.

There are 122 graves in this cemetery according to this sites burial records.
