West Union Cemetery WPA Records

Contributed for use in IAGenWeb by Von Mings Stachon

In the late 1930's one of the tasks the WPA was assigned was recording cemeteries. It is unknown whether the WPA workers actually viewed the tombstones or collected the info from death records at the courthouse or from newspaper obituaries. However, even with the inaccuracies in their recordings due to a variety of reasons, we are still grateful for the resource. Since some of the markers are no longer readable, the WPA records may be the only records we have.

(Coordinators Note: If I have added notes they will be in RED. If GPP is underlined it is a link to the IA Gravestone Photo Project. If you see Obit underlined, it is linked to an obituary found on the Tama county web site.)
