Locust Cemetery Photo by Bill Waters

Welcome to the Locust Cemetery Page. This document summarizing data for 314 graves is mainly based on a 100% Photo survey conducted by Bill Waters in April 2010 and was created by merging the information found in the Works Project Administration (WPA) 1930ís Graves Registration Survey (41 records), the ongoing Iowa Gravestone Photo Project (GPP) (364 records), and the ongoing IAGenWeb Obituaries (Obits) (117 records). The left columns of the tabulation indicate the source of the summary data WPA (W), GPP (G) and Obits (O). Note that some records have more than one source; this is because in many cases the information is redundant. If there is a disagreement, your county coordinator has used his best judgment about which information to include in the compilation. This summary contains a wealth of information that was made available by volunteers taking pictures and transcribing data. Those volunteers are to be applauded, keep up the good work! [Coordinator's note: The numbers in this summary do not "add up" for a variety of reasons, the main ones being that many married women (52) have 2 GPP records one with their maiden name and one with their married name, that most Family Stones (5) have adjacent smaller stones that mark individual graves and that some graves (5) have more than one marker.]
