Moody Cemetery
Sec 34 NW/SW, Mendon Twp

Moody cemetery is reached from McGregor by either of these routes:

1) turn off W. Main St. (Hwy 18) onto Garnavillo Ave., which becomes Kittyhawk Ave. Follow Kittyhawk Ave. south to a road on the east leading into the cemetery (if you get to King Rd you will need to backtrack a short distance). Follow the lane thru the woods to the graveyard.

2) travel south on the Great River Road (X-56) to King Rd and turn west and drive to Kittyhawk Ave., turn north. The cemetery road will be on the right, and may not be well-marked. Follow it through the trees to the cemetery.

Be aware that you can not see the cemetery from Kittyhawk Ave. and the cemetery road may not be well-marked (it is more of a lane through the woods than it is a road)


~ original source of burials on this list is the survey of graves by Joyce Brucker when she walked the cemetery & recorded the inscriptions in the summer of 2003
~ Joyce's notes: There were some stones that were so worn down that we couldn't even get a rubbing off of them. In my research I found that that were also some bodies buried there with no stones, especially during the flu epidemic in the 1920's.
