This listing of Kent Cemetery burials transcribed and formatted by Don Wherry, former Poweshiek County Coordinator, 2012.

Kent Cemetery, Madison Township, Section 23, on the north side of state road V18 just over 4 miles north of Brooklyn, where V18 is coincident with Kent Church Road.  Kent Union Chapel is at the south-east corner of the cemetery. The first burial was Mrs. Coulson in 1859. In 1937 there were 263 graves, many early settlers.  There are just less than 400 identifiable graves, ca. 2010.

Much of the then-current information on this page was previously recorded by the WPA in the late 1930s, and again by Karen and Nicholas Groves, and Elizabeth Ernst in June, 1980. More recent information, and an objective standard for review of older data, is courtesy of Colette Harrison's gravestone photos posted on the Iowa Gravestone Photo Project website.

This cemetery is just south of Holiday Lake, on the north side of state road V18 just over 4 miles north of Brooklyn, where V18 is coincident with Kent Church Road.  This area has been known as Kents' Corner since the earliest days of settlement.  The first school taught in Madison township, in 1854 or 1855, met in a log school house built at Kents' Corner.  Kent cemetery has been in use since 1859, according to the 1880 Poweshiek county history, when a Mrs. (Hervey?) Coulson was buried there.  At the time the 1880 county history was being compiled there were approximately 100 burials in Kent Cemetery.

The Kent school-house was moved eastward about a mile and a half, some time around 1908.  The community decided that a structure was needed near the cemetery for funerals, and the Kent Ladies Aid spearheaded a fund-drive that resulted in the construction of Kent Chapel, dedicated in 1909.  The cemetery is north and west of the white frame Kent Chapel building that's easily visible from the road.  Kent Chapel has always been non-denominaltional.

Parker's 1911 Poweshiek county history ignores the cemetery altogether, but has this photo of the then-new Kent Chapel:

Kent Union Chapel, ca 1910

A community support group for the chapel re-organized after the beginning of the third millenium, and effected a major restoration and renovation of the Chapel for its Centennial in 2009.
