History

Westport Township Cemetery was established in 1891.

Cemetery Records

Records published here were acquired from the Spirit Lake Public Library on October 27, 2016. Dates of death range from 1885 to 2015.

Although lots had been sold over the years, actual burials in Westport Township Cemetery were not recorded until 1973. That spring, Charlotte Brett of Spencer, a member of the NW Iowa Genealogical Society, met with Trustee and caretaker Ed Vetter to inquire about the location of gravesites there. Vetter, along with his niece Betty Baish, the township clerk, proceeded to research courthouse records to find the names of people buried at Westport. Charlotte then drew a map and listed burials by location in the cemetery. Ironically, Ed Vetter lost his life in June of 1973 when his tractor overturned as he was mowing the ditch in front of the cemetery. Charlotte Brett is buried with her family in the Westport Township Cemetery.
