Des Moines River Cemetery
(Wapello County, 1/2 mile west of County Line)
While this cemetery is in neighboring Wapello County, we have chosen to include it on our site since there are people from the nearby Jefferson County, Des Moines Township, buried there.
While compiling the cemetery listings to provide you with as much information as possible we found it necessary to add an INDEX TO SOURCE INFORMATION. We have made special effort to show from which source the information was obtained in order for you to document the information.
Since this information has been transcribed several times and its accuracy may be flawed we encourage you to verify this information with all primary information available to you.
