McDonald - Chase Cemetery
Winterset, Madison County, Iowa

Lat: 41° 21' 35"N, Lon: 94° 05' 44"W
Douglas Township, Sec 20

Contributed by Judy Wight Branson, Dec 23, 1999, last updated Dec 31, 2004 [jlwight@northlink.com].  Total records = 219.

This cemetery is about 6 miles north of Winterset and 3/4 mile east of Heritage Lane at 1763 - 200th St. in Douglas Township.

The original burial ground was donated by Thomas McDonald in 1875. As need arose for more space, other members of the McDonald family donated more land. In 1920 Mrs. W. A. Chace donated another section and the cemetery was registered Oct 26, 1934 with the county as the McDonald - Chace Cemetery, and stipulated to be used by anyone regardless of color or creed. The cemetery is still in use and well maintained.

I compared my work with one recorded by Joseph C. Brittain in Oct of 1970 and Lewis E. Morris in 1977, as well as two burial indexes, marriage, death and cemetery records for Madison County, Iowa and the Social Security record for verification, where possible, in order to make this list as accurate as possible.

I have transcribed from tombstone readings and compared that with the above resources up to Dec 23, 1999. In 2003 I took digital photos of each of the headstones, which I will share. This is complete to Dec 31, 2004.

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.
