SWEET HOME CEMETERY
(a.k.a. LESANVILLE CEMETERY)

east of Mount Ayr, Poe Township, Ringgold County, Iowa

Photograph by Sharon R. Becker

A cemetery was established in 1872 on land donated by George W. LESAN, and the first interment was the child of Mr. and Mrs. J. P. LESAN.

Other settlers were moving into the neighborhood and they needed a larger cemetery. It was called "Sweet Home" Cemetery and all of the bodies but two were moved from the old one to the new cemetery. Those left belonged to families who had moved out of the state. There are some of five generations of LESANS buried in this cemetery.

~ Kellerton, Iowa: A History to 1981, p. 132. 1981

Sweet Home (a.k.a. Lesanville) Cemetery is located approximately 5 miles east of Mount Ayr off U.S. Highway 2 on county highway P-56 in Poe Township, Ringgold County, Iowa.
