Clarke County, Iowa Cemeteries

Cemeteries have always felt like special places to me. As a child we spent every Memorial Day weekend decorating the graves of our ancestors in Clarke county with flowers either brought from home or from my uncle Jr's. home. They were usually irises or peonies stuck in glass jars filled with water. As we went through the cemetery my mom would explain to me who this person was and how we were related. This often led to stories about their lives. I am convinced that this is what started my interest in genealogy. I hope the information and pictures you find through these cemetery pages help you in your search for your family. (by Celia Luce Davis)
