RISING SUN (a.k.a. GROVE CHAPEL or GROVE) CEMETERY

Lincoln Township, Ringgold County, Iowa
rising sun
Photograph by Tony Mercer, May of 2012

Early obituaries refer to Rising Sun Cemetery as Lincoln Township Cemetery. Other early obituaries refer to the cemetery as either Grove Chapel or Grove Cemetery.

Rising Sun (a.k.a. Grove Chapel or Grove) Cemetery is located on County Road 120th Street in rural Lincoln Township, Ringgold County, Iowa [SE corner of the SW 1/4 of Section 10, T70, R31].

Rising Sun Cemetery was recorded for Ringgold County Historical Society by Betty Ruby and Ruth Haley in 1979. Transcriptions updated by Ricky Wiley of Diagonal, Iowa, in October of 2000; and by Sharon R. Becker in December of 2009.

Tony Mercer photographed the gravestones at Riving Sun Cemetery in May of 2012.

The plat for Rising Sun Cemetery is divided by the drive into an east section and a west section. The same lot numbers are used on either side. The letter and number to the left of the name indicates the burial lot and the section on the cemetery plat.
