Photographs and Plat Maps

We have assembled a series of photographs and plat maps that will increase your understanding of this area. The pictures are in Word documents with a description and they are also separate so you can print them one at a time. The whole file with a more complete history on some of the families and the pictures and maps are available on CD and in printed copy. They can be ordered from Marilu for $8.00 each. My email address is Please put Browns History File in the subject line so I do not delete the email.

The cemetery tombstone records for St. Joseph’s Church at Sugar Creek, through 1972, are available at the Central Community Historical Society and Museum, 628 6th Ave., DeWitt, Iowa 52742. They have very limited hours, which usually include Monday morning and Sunday afternoons through the summer. If there are questions, you may email Ann Soenksen at
