Creveling Cemetery
New Buda Township, Section 6, Decatur County, Iowa

Photograph courtesy of Nancee(McMurtrey)Seifert, June of 2010

Nearest town: Lamoni
Earliest tombstone burial: July 30 1857 ( #3-1)
(History books say #1-1 - no date on stone - died Jan 1855)

History: Clemuel and Eliza Creveling came to Decatur County (Section 6) in 1853. The name of the cemetery was from this family's land. Other than family burials the other burials seem to have been neighbors. The cemetery cannot be seen from the road; about half a mile to the west; enter through farm house driveway. Large and well cared for. Some attempt has been made to replace broken stones in correct order.

Nancee noted, "This entrance is at the back of the cemetery - possibly the original entrance. The iron gate is quite old."
