Boone County Cemeteries

Elk Rapids Cemetery

In 1851, Benjamin Williams platted the town of Elk Rapids. The settlement flourished until 1857 when the waters of the Des Moines River carried away the mill there. When Mrs. Benjamin (Elsie) Williams died in 1847, Mr. Williams donated the land for her burial which was later to become Elk Rapids Cemetery.

In 1913, due to the construction by the railroad company, a number of burials on the south side of the cemetery were reinterred in various cemeteries in Boone County.

In 1973, due to the construction of the Saylorville Dam and Lake, the remaining burials were moved to Dalander Cemetery. There are at least 20 unknown persons who were reinterred to Dalander Cemetery in 1973.

The following partial list of burials original to Elk Rapids Cemetery was gathered from death records, cemetery records and newspaper articles. If the location of reinterrment is known, it is listed in the "Reinterrment" column.
