    Pumptown Cemetery is located north of Sun Valley Lake, Union Township, Ringgold County, Iowa, near the town of Ellston. The cemetery is one of the older ones of Ringgold County. It is located in a field and on a ridge approximately 300 yards off a dirt road. Although there had been many interments in this cemetery, all that remains are 21 gravestones. The last interment appears to have been made in 1924.

In the summer of 2009 the Ringgold County Cemetery Preservation Society and the Bill & Angie Hynek family did extensive restoration work at Pumptown Cemetery.

Tony Mercer photographed the gravestones in June of 2012.
