Campbell Family CemeteryThe Wallace Campbell family arrived in 1879 and chose this specific area of their land to create a cemetery because there was a magnificent old oak tree there. About 18 graves were placed behind the barn at the edge of the old oak tree. As late as the 1960s the farmer was known to have maintained a fence around the site, and he often mowed the grounds. CAMPBELL, Alice Beatrice (FITZELL), b. 1871, d. 1951, other sources show b.1 Sep 1872 in Cedar Rapids IA, d. 10 Jul 1951
Location: Section 12, T12N, R7W. Off highway 6.
