Google Map showing all Grundy Co. cemeteries
In the Fall of 2010 and Summer of 2011, the cemeteries were walked and all the gravestones were photographed (ending up with nearly 20,000 photos). The photos have been uploaded to the Iowa Gravestone Photo Project (a.k.a. Iowa GPP) website.
While most of the grave markers are legible, some were very difficult to read and others have been worn completely smooth from the elements of nature.
Please, if you find inaccurate information listed on any of the pages on this site, send me an email so it can be corrected. Thank you!
