A collection of the Blessing Cemetery people that Von collected from the WPA project.
The 18 names on the WPA project list were not found in the cemetery when she did her recording in July 2008.
While the 18 names were not found in the Blessing Cemetery, they were all located in the Baker's Grove Cemetery, Tama County. Von Mings Stachon recorded the Baker's Grove Cemetery and recognized the names. So what happened is someone who recorded for WPA in the 30s mistakenly labeled their listing Blessing when it should have been labeled Baker's Grove.
