Monroe Township, Ringgold County, Iowa

View from the road

Gate entrance

Woodland Cemetery is located near Kellerton, east of County Road P-64 on a ridge in Monroe Township of Ringgold County [SW1/4 of SW1/4 Section 29, T69, R28]. It is difficult to determine where the orginal cemetery boundaries once were. It is believed that there are many gravesites in this cemetery which no longer have a gravestone.

The WPA graves survey refer to Woodland Cemetery as Westland Cemetery.

Woodland cemetery was recorded for Ringgold County Historical Society by Betty Ruby and Ruth Haley of Diagonal in 1978; transcriptions updated November of 2000 by Rick Wiley of Diagonal, and by Sharon R. Becker in March of 2010. Veteran information updated May of 2015 courtesy of Cathy Kilgore, Ringgold County Veterans Affairs; plot location from Raymond Banner's book, Cemetery Gravestone Recordings of Ringgold County.
