Abandoned or Lost Cemeteries

Blondeau Street Cemetery
 From a book transcribed by Ernie Braida, Pastor of St. Peter's in Keokuk from 1978-1984
1844
      “The pioneer church of the village was of course Roman Catholic. A lot had been given on the corner of Blondeau and Second streets, upon which to build a church; meantime a house of two rooms was put up on the corner of the lot at the rear and here masses were said, one of the rooms being fitted up as a chapel, the priest living in the other. Weddings were also solemnized in the small chapel, one of which I attended, that of Elizabeth Hunt and Henry Louis [De Louis], my cousin and myself being the only witnesses. “The lots surrounding the Church were used as a cem­etery. On one occasion twenty-five men were buried there who were killed by the explosion of the steamboat Mechanic in their endeavors to get off a large rock in the first chain of the rapids, from which circumstance it took the name of Mechanic rock.
