The first person buried here was William Myers, July 14, 1863. This unique little fenced cemetery is near an old road bed which led to the North Raccoon River. Here lies the grave of Rebecca J. Woodley, a former slave and cook in the Union Army. She was with Sherman's troops whey they marched across Georgia. She died in 1887.

It was one of the first cemeteries in the area. When they started the Elmwood in Minburn, Iowa, they moved a lot of the graves there. Then the cattle got into Myers Cemetery and knocked down a lot of the stones. They put up a fence but by then it was to late.

Thank you Clarence for taking the photos we now have on the Gravestone Photo Project and for the above information.
