St Francis DeSales Cemetery - photo by Bill Waters

Welcome to the Saint Francis de Sales Cemetery Page. This document summarizing data for 1574 graves is mainly based on a 100% Photo survey conducted by Bill Waters in April 2012 and was created by merging the information found in the Works Project Administration (WPA) 1930ís Graves Registration Survey (385 URL's), the ongoing Iowa Gravestone Photo Project (GPP) (1838 URL's), and the ongoing IAGenWeb Obituaries (Obits) (169 URL's). The left columns of the tabulation indicate the source of the summary data WPA (W), GPP (G) 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. 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! [Coordinator's note: The numbers in this summary do not "add up" for a variety of reasons, the main one being that many married women have 2 GPP records one with their maiden name and one with their married name]
