SOULES PRIVATE CEMETERY

BUFFALO   TWP   SECTION 5

 

 

This private cemetery lies west of the Chicago & Northwestern railroad tracks west of

Stanley, Iowa, just  south of the county line.

Rose Brewer's cemetery records state that 2 stillborn Soules infants are buried here with

no markers.

Legend has it that the children buried here were relatives of the Soule family who came

for a visit and died of a contagious disease during their visit. Sometime after their burial

 the railroad tracks were laid. (This info from Neva Pond).
