The Clarke County Genealogical Society compiled this listing of burials by walking the cemetery. This listing is included in their book Clarke Co., IA Cemeteries, vol. 2: The Rural Cemeteries, c. 1997. They still retain copyright to this list. I am grateful to them for sharing this information .

The stones are recorded in the order they are set in the row. They started in the northwest corner and every row of stones was read from the north end to the south end, always working from the western-most row to the east. If the cemetery was divided into sections, each section will start in its northwest corner. The listing is by rows of stones, not by lots. Their intention was to include all the names, dates, places, relationships, military histories and organization memberships that were engraved on the stone. They did not note metal spikes set into the ground, such as GAR markers, as those markers are sometimes moved by mowers, vandals, or children so can't be counted on as an accurate source of information. Space limitations prevented them from including poetry and inspirational notations engraved on the stones.

Each stone is listed with a row-stone number such as 05-03 (the third stone in the fifth row). If there is more than one person named on the same stone, the number is repeated for each one. Words in (parenthesis) are not actually on the stone. Often only given names and dates were engraved on the foot stones next to a large family headstone. They made an effort to determine the surname for those foot stones, based on type of stone and proximity to a family headstone, then put the surname in parenthesis. There is the possibility of error. Also in parenthesis are notations about the condition or location of the stone or additional information about the deceased person taken from the WPA's Graves Registration book.

Underlined words or numbers indicate that the word or number was difficult to read and that they have made a "best guess."
