Franklin Grove Cemetery
section 3, Pierce twp, Page County, Iowa; approximately 4 miles straight north of Essex, Iowa.
copied by Pat Combs O'Dell, 31 May 1986. Stones were copied west to east. Because the stones are not in definite rows, I did not number them. There was a pile of tombstone pieces in the northwest corner of the cemetery. They have reset many stones (very nicely) in new rows and I'm not sure they actually knew where the graves were. The restoration efforts were very helpful and neat. I usually try to copy exactly what is on the tombstone from top to bottom. Any corrections are welcome and I can compare to other records.
If you know of unmarked graves in this cemetery or have obituaries of these people, will you please share this information. Also, you should check with Betty Ankeny hankeny@heartland.net and see if others have found tombstones that I didn't find or transcribed them differently.
