Urmy / Yankee Grove Cemetery
Section 15 of Monroe Township, Benton County, Iowa

~ Listing of Legible Stones ~

Recorded by Wilma Patrizek, 1989.

"This cemetery was re-discovered and cleaned in 1989. It is located on the first gravel road east of Dysart, four miles, then half mile north. Turn back west into a farmer's field and follow the path to the cemetery, on a little rise. Many are buried in this cemetery, for there are numerous stones and markers laying on the ground, but unreadable. The Urmy Family established a church and cemetery near sections 14 and 15. Older Urmy family members are buried here, some graves marked with large head rocks."   Wilma Patrizek, 1989.
