Cemetery History

Linwood Cemetery (now known as the "West Division" section) was founded June 9, 1866, and the original plot was purchased from McFarland and Hull. Lots 341 and 372 were platted on July 28, 1880, and added to the original tract and was purchased from Bascomb.

The second addition was added November 18, 1892, and consisted of Lots 1 to 23 along the east line of the Chicago & Northwestern Railway and Lots 24 to 61 south of the original plat and was known as the "Stevens Addition.'

On July 25, 1895, a corporation, called "East Linwood Cemetery Association," was formed to establish and develop a cemetery east of the creek and providing for a permanent care fund. The land for the new cemetery was purchased from Goodykoontz, Herman, and Wright.

On July 19, 1912, a new corporation was formed to take over both of the above cemeteries and place the whole under permanent care and this was done and called "Linwood Park Cemetery Association."

A new addition was opened for sale of lots October 1, 1963, located south of the East Linwood section consisting of about twelve acres of land with a wide circular hard surfaced roadway through the section giving access to all lots therein. This new area is divided into VIII Gardens, and is known as Linwood Park Garden Section. Except as to Garden V, Second Addition, the area is a memorial area. Garden V, Second Addition, is on the west side of this area and will be a monument section, the remainder of the area is a memorial section and is governed by the same rules as set out for the Memorial Park Sections H, I, and J in the East Linwood Area. This new area is to be developed with appropriate shrubbery, cedar trees, and other types of trees and plantings.

On July 1, 1992, the cemetery operations were taken over by the City of Boone.

The first burial in Linwood Cemetery is believed to be Lydia Lockwood on October 14, 1855, on Lot 21, West Division.

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.
