Mt. Olivet Cemetery List

Manilla, Crawford County, Iowa


The cemetery was walked and recorded by Norm Prince in August 2005. The data was typed and the cemetery re-walked to check for spelling and date errors. The grave stones where recorded beginning along the east drive and the rows where numbered from east to west; each row was read from north to south. Several stones were unreadable and with greatful help from Norbert Kasperbauer, the sextent of the cemetery, most of the missing information was located in the records.
