  • Mooreville no longer exists and even though this old Benton County map shows Mooreville, many believe it was about five miles north of Dysart on Wolf Creek, just inside of Tama County. No cemeteries or churches are marked on the 1875 map either, but there is a cemetery 3 miles southeast of the old site of Mooreville. There are very few headstones remaining in the cemetery and the only one I have information about is for Mary Brown, daughter of the J.R. Browns, died 1872.

  • Section 31: Brown / Herb / Bruce Cemetery. Not shown on map, but existed in 1875.
