Hello and Welcome!

I am Lynn Diemer-Mathews, your Boone County Coordinator.
Contact me with any questions or if you have material to contribute.

Many thanks to previous coordinators
for their hard work and dedication.

Questions regarding cemetery plots or care of cemeteries should be
directed to the recordkeeper for that cemetery. Any funeral home in the
town nearest the cemetery wil have that person's name and contact information.

Boone County is located in central Iowa, about 45 miles northwest
of Iowa's capital city of Des Moines. Although settlers were known
to briefly live in the county as early as 1843, the first permanent settler,
Charles Gaston, arrived in 1846, the same year Iowa became a state.
Boone County was established as a county in 1847; however, for a
couple of years it remained a part of Polk County for judicial,
voting and tax purposes. The county was formally organized in 1849.
