Contributed by Billie Purcell [firstname.lastname@example.org]. Total records = 33.
Go 6 miles west of Woodbine on Willow Lake Road. Left on Newkirk Road. Right at the T, Left at the Y past 2nd farmhouse, 1/4 mile on left on top of hill surrounded by trees and fence.
We asked at the only grocery store in Woodbine for directions. Above they are as approximate as we can be, allowing for all the hills and winding roads.
The Jesse Purcell Cemetery is on the land he purchased in 1856 and is near Woodbine, Harrison Co., Iowa. We believe Jim Winther owned the place in 1997.
We visited the cem. in the 80's and in comparing records taken in Sep of 1997. We found one headstone missing so that grave will be accounted for in this list.
