I have relatives buried in Linwood Park, Squire Boone and Fairview that I know of and have photos of their gravestones. I also have a cousin in Madrid and both of us are active in genealogy. He found where one of our great-grandmother (my 3rd) was buried in Linwood Park when graves were moved from the Elk Rapids Cemetery during the Saylorville Res. project. Her grave was not marked but the records of where whe was buried were at the Boone Co. Historical building. Together we marked her grave.
My 2nd great-grandfather, Matthias Hoffman is buried in the Squire Boone Cemetery, along with many more ancestors. He and older brother Jefferson came to Iowa in 1848 from Indiana, near Brazil. They both returned to Indiana to marry the Nutt sisters in 1849, returning to farm in Iowa. There father Jacob and grandfather John are buried at the Harpold Cemetery just west of Brazil. John came from Tarlton, Ohio where his father Jacob (my 5th gg) is buried at the Tarlton Cemetery. He was a Patriot in the Revolutionary.
