German Methodist cemetery Photo by Bill Waters

Welcome to the German Methodist Cemetery Page. This document summarizing data for 22 graves was created by merging the information found in the Works Project Administration (WPA) 1930ís Graves Registration Survey (9 records), the ongoing Iowa Gravestone Photo Project (GPP) (21 records), Janice Sowers' German Methodist Cemetery book (21 records), and the ongoing IAGenWeb Obituaries (Obits) (0 records). The left column of the tabulation indicates the source of the summary data Sowers (S), WPA (W), GPP (P) 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 judgment about which information to include in the compilation. Please note the four icons below the cemetery tables. These icons can be used to access various web based sources of German Methodist Cemetery information. 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!

Connie Street is the past Winneshiek County IAGenWeb coordinator. While Connie was coordinator she uploaded over 650 pictures to the GPP project database. Thank you Connie, and the many others who have taken the time to share their cemetery pictures with us, now we can all take a virtual cemetery tour via the internet. Connie's pictures included one for the German Methodist Cemetery entrance. This is what Connie wrote about the German Methodist Cemetery. " Located on County Road A46 west of Ridgeway and east of 335th Avenue on north side of road."
