RINGGOLD CEMETERY

Lotts Creek Township, Ringgold County, Iowa

Originally called Schooler Grove in the 1840's after Charles Harrison SCHOOLER, Ringgold City was the first settlement in Ringgold County. When SCHOOLER's wife and infant daughter Manoah B. died, SCHOOLER established the first cemetery in Ringgold County. Laid out as a town in 1855, the same year as when Ringgold County was organized, Ringgold City was located on the Dragoon Trace, a natural trail through the county and one that had been used by the Native Americans and later the Dragoon militia.

Many of the funerals were held in either the homes or at the Ringgold Evangelical Church. Although there were high hopes for the settlement in anticipation of a railroad line and from traffic off the Dragoon Trace, Ringgold City was never more than a hamlet. Ringgold City's post office was in operation from 1860 to 1908. When it became apparent that the railroad would never pass through Ringgold City, the settlement began to decline. The church was torn down in 1939 with the materials used to build a new Assembly of God Church at Redding. The school closed in the 1950's.

Ringgold Cemetery is located north of county highway J-67 in Lotts Creek Township, Ringgold County, Iowa near the Iowa-Missouri border [Sec 21, R29, T67]. Some of the gravesites are marked with field stones.
