Phelps cemetery - photo by Bill Waters

Welcome to the Phelps Cemetery Page. This document summarizing data for 4253 graves is mainly based on a 100% Photo survey conducted by Bill Waters (started in April 2011 - completed in August 2011) and was created by merging the information found in the Works Project Administration (WPA) 1930ís Graves Registration Survey (1179 records), the ongoing Iowa Gravestone Photo Project (GPP) (4296 records), and the ongoing IAGenWeb Obituaries (Obits) (74 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 judgement 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 one being that many married women have 2 GPP records one with their maiden name and one with their married name]

This section diagram does not depict the official Phelps cemetery sections. It comes from the notes that I (Bill Waters) made as I conducted my photo survey of the Phelps cemetery. The sections shown on this diagram correspond to the sections that are provided in the cemetery table.
