From Minburn Iowa, go south on Hwy 169 to 210th St (approx 1.5 miles) Turn right (west) onto 210th and follow this road to it's end. Turn left (south), onto Midland Trail. About a 1/4 mile south on the west side of the road, look for a path which goes back into the cemetery.

Milburn cemetery is located on a beautiful knoll two miles southwest of Minburn, Iowa and it overlooks the Raccoon River.

This cemetery is also known as the Kimrey Cemetery, probably because of the the following: The story goes that a family was traveling westward in search of a place to call home. They were forced to stop because of illness with their children, who eventually died of typhoid. John Kimrey donated about two acres of land from his homestead so this family could bury their children. This being the location of this cemetery. These graves have become lost, since there were no stones available for headstones at the time.

Cemetery was surveyed on the 13th of Aug 2000. There were at least 7 stones with unreadable names. Headstones in this cemetery date back to about 1850.

What makes us Different?

Single-sourced, not crowd-sourced

Each transcription we publish comes from a single-source, be it the cemetery office, government office, church office, archived document, a tombstone transcriber. Other websites already do an excellent job of crowd-sourcing a single cemetery together. But genealogists also need to see the original records from a single source. That's what we offer.
