Worthing Cemetery is in at the Corner of 300th & Woodland Streets in Ohio Township, Madison County, Iowa.

Worthing cemetery started in the late 1800s, judging from the dates in this transcription and has not been used since about 1968. I have not found out who owns and maintains it. It appears to be a family cemetery.

Research & comparisons were from a transcription done by Mrs. M. C. Wheelwright in 1970, two burial indexes, birth, marriage, death, funeral home, obituaries and cemeter records for Madison County, Iowa and the Social Security records for verification whenever possible, in order to make this list as accurate and complete as possible.

I have transcribed from the headstone photos I took when I visited the cemetery in 2003. Then I compared with all the above resources.

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.
