Garnavillo Township
Section 18 SE/SW

Old Garnavillo cemetery, established in 1844, is on property owned by the town of Garnavillo, behind the current St. Paul's Evangelical Lutheran Church. There is no sign identifying the cemetery. No burial records of this cemetery are known to exist and many of the gravestones have been lost to time and the elements. A plat of known graves can be found at the Garnavillo Historical Society. The new Garnavillo cemetery can be seen from this cemetery.

*Notes
1) Frederick Benjegerdes (given name Johann Frederick) was born 14 Apr 1823.  However, with the date of birth and death it doesn't come out to be 48 years, 5 months and 23 days.  I have the birth date from the church records in Garnavillo so don't know why it isn't correct.  He is my great, grandfather who married Henrietta Charlotte Wilhelmina Meier (her 2nd marriage). Their son is Johan D. (Diedrich) Benjegerdes for which date of birth and death agree with the age of 18 years, 1 month and 25 days. ~from Grace (Benjegerdes) Keir, November 2010

2) Johann Gerhardt Schulte b. April 6, 1819 and d. July 22, 1861 aged 42 years, 3 months and 16 days was the first husband of Henrietta Charlotte Wilhelmina Meier.  She had 5 children by J. Gerhardt who were half siblings of my grandfather, Fred W. Benjegerdes of Postville. ~from Grace (Benjegerdes) Keir, November 2010, Grace's email address can be found in the surname registry for Benjegerdes

3) Jacob Bitter / Bitters - His name appears on the Consolidated List of persons subject to do military duty, residence Garnavillo, June 1862 or 1863 (date difficult to read), he was a single man, a laborer, b. Germany. The records of Co. D, 27th Iowa Volunteer Infantry indicate that Jacob Bitter was rejected in Oct 1862 due to having consumption. In August 1863 he enlisted in the 8th Iowa Cavalry from Elkader. National Archives records indicate his gravestone was erected in 1886 in the Garnavillo cemetery. The order for the headstone reads Pvt. Co B, Regt 6th Iowa Cav., date of death on the order form is blank.
