Altman Cemetery
Keokuk County, Jackson Township, Section 36


We regret that after we received the following information we failed to note from whom we had received it. We share it with you just as we have received it. We felt it could well be helpful to researchers whose ancestors lived in Polk or Black Hawk Townships in Jefferson County, since the cemetery is very near the northern borders of those townships.

Altman cemetery is in Keokuk County, Jackson Twp., section 36. It is on the south side of hwy. 78, just east of the Packwood junction. There is a sign in the fence row and the cemetery is down a lane.

If you need further information on a listed name, contact the Jefferson County Genealogical Society or post a Query on our Query Board.

An underlined surname indicates there is a gravestone picture on our Jefferson County portion of The Iowa Gravestone Photo Project. Clicking the underlined name will take you to that picture.
