  • The first burying ground in Hampton was situated just west of the village, on the south side of Squaw creek. The first body interred was that of Mrs. Howe (or Ryan), who froze to death in the winter of 1856-57. July 11, 1863, a cemetery association was formed, constitution and by-laws adopted. The first officers elected were: George H. Ingham, president; George Beed, secretary; and J.J. Johnston, treasurer; George H. Ingham, A. Rice, J.J. Johnston, N. McDonald and George Beed, trustees. The society, soon after its organization, purchased two and a half acres of land of Obadiah Smith, for cemetery purposes. A few years later, ten acres were added, making twelve and one half acres in all. The bodies of all those interred in the old cemetery, were removed to the new. This cemetery is located just northeast of town, on the north bank of Squaw creek, on a beautiful plateau overlooking the city. It contains some fine monuments, among which, is that of the late Judge J.W. McKenzie, which is a mottled granite column, bearing the inscription on one side: The Hero of Altoona. That of J. Bobst, is the most costly in the yard. ~History of Franklin County, Iowa; 1883, pg 429
