Madison Township, Madison County, Iowa
Contributed by Judy Wight Branson, March 2000 [Jlwight@northlink.com].
Total records = 19.
Originally walked and recorded in 1976 by Lewis E. Morris. Additional assistance in identifying those buried here provided to me by Bob Lytton of Madison County.
There are four children's graves that are either unmarked or unreadable. In addition to, or included in the four children's graves, the cemetery records state that three young children of Ruel B. and Talibitha Jane (Goff) Powell are reported to be buried here, but exactly where is not know.
