CEMETERIES IN JOHNSON COUNTY

This webpage was updated 30 Jan 2015

Fran Eichler, who recorded and transcribed all data for the Lone Tree Cemetery and the Swank Cemetery and contributed data for the Iowa City Oakland Cemetery, passed away 20 Jan 2007. See A TRIBUTE TO FRAN EICHLER

Gravestones in these cemeteries were recorded by the Iowa City Genealogical Society through 1985 and were published by the Iowa Genealogical Society.  Copies are located in the State Historical Society Library in Iowa City and in the Iowa City Public Library.  They may be purchased from the Iowa Genealogical Society.

* Betty Culbertson  provided these directions to the Fountain Cemetery:
Going East to Lone Tree, IA on Hwy 22, Turn N on  Sioux, then East on 580th, then North on Taft to a dead end, left or west into Farm Lane, fire number 5653, head back, past house, then
through a gate and  to the left up a hill.   You are able to see the flag  flying over the cemetery from the road.

** STAGE FARM CEMETERY: Doris Dickerson provided this information from the History of Johnson County Iowa 1836-1882. The first person buried was Charles Frost, a young man.
The cemetery was located on the Stage Farm, then occupied by Mr. Keeler. The cemetery association was organized in 1842. A deed was made but through carelessness was never recorded.
Mr. Paster bought the farm and gave notice for people to remover their dead, which they neglected to do thinking any time would do. The next Spring the land was grubbed out, plowed and put
into grain. There is nothing now to mark the spot where so many sleep. The following are a few who are remembered to have been buried there:
Charles Frost; wife and two children of J. R. Tillis; Lyman Frost; Wife of Samuel Harrison; Jackson Frost; Jaris Frost; Henry Headly; Thomas King; Mr. Keeler; Mrs. Clapp; Mr. Clapp
