After attending a recent burial at Cottonwood Cemetery, my Dad drove me past a farmstead two miles west of Cozad and pointed out a very long barn. He said he had been told that the north end of this barn is the old Bethel Church building that used to be on the east side of the Cottonwood (or Bethel) Cemetery. The area where the church used to stand is now part of the cemetery.
For anyone researching Cozad ancestors who came from Barren County, KY, this church was on the eastern edge of their settlement, and many attended there.
Does anyone know if any church records survived?
