Welcome to the Cemetery Page. This document summarizes data for 603 graves and is mainly based on a 100% Photo survey conducted by Bill Waters in August of 2009 and was created by merging the information found in the Works Project Administration (WPA) 1930ís Graves Registration Survey (145 Records), the ongoing Iowa Gravestone Photo Project (GPP) (670 Records), and the ongoing IAGenWeb Obituaries (Obits) (275 Records). These tables incorporate 30 pointers to photos of the deceased. The left columns of the tabulation indicate the source of the summary data WPA (W), GPP (G) and Obits (O). A camera Icon indicates that either an obit or a GPP record or both display a photo of the deceased. 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 (113) have 2 GPP records one with their maiden name and one with their married name, that most Family Stones (30) have adjacent smaller stones that mark individual graves.]
