Boone County Cemeteries

Hickory Grove Cemetery

Hickory Grove Cemetery is located in Yell Township. This cemetery was restored, walked and transcribed through death records in 2006 by Tina Keister for IA GenWeb.

This cemetery was once adjacent to the Hickory Grove School (no longer there). Long-time Boone County residents in the area who lived near and went to the school gave the following description of the cemetery:

This cemetery at one time was a little over one acre in size and had a white picket fence around it. There were many children and whole families buried in this cemetery. Whenever there was a funeral it was usually held in the school and the school bell would ring as the procession of people would carry the departed to the cemetery across the road. There is reported to be between 40 to 50 burials in this cemetery but only one stone survives, Archibald Gilliland.
