Contributed by Judy Wight Branson, Sep 06, 2000, updated Dec 13, 2003 [jlwight@northlink.com]. Total records = 170.

From Pitzer, Iowa take Hwy 92 west to Deer Run Lane, turn right on Deer Run. The cemetery is at 1780 Deer Run Lane.

Also known as Eppard Cemetery and Phillips & Jackson Township Cemetery. The first burial was made some time before 1860, first burial listed below seems to be about 1867, however many of the earliest graves went unmarked.

Early maps use Eppard Cemetery and some of the first burials seem to be Eppard. No one seems certain of the history or date when the cemetery was taken over by the United Presbyterian church of Pitzer, but it is well cared for and in good condition.

This cemetery was walked and recorded by Donna Golightly in 1975. Then again walked, recorded with a digital camera in 2003 by Ida V. Morse. This listing has been transcribed from these sources, with permission, in Dec 2003.

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.
