Bucy Cemetery
Burrell Township, Section 12, Decatur County, Iowa

Nearest town: Decatur
Earliest tombstone burial: Jan. 7, 1860
Latest tombstone burial: Dec. 21, 1906

History: This is a private family cemetery which was never deeded to the county and stands abandoned. A road which ran close by is now closed and the cemetery cannot be seen from the present road. It stands on a rise of ground with large elm trees. The stones are all standing (except one) in one row; there is no gate to the fenced-in area. The Bucy family came from Kentucky and lived nearby, but they are not listed on county maps of 1875 or 1894.

Above information was sent to me from Lois Slade. I visited the cemetery on the 3rd of March 2000. The Elm trees are in poor condition and the fence that is around the stones is flat on the ground. I have heard stories about the Bucy's were dying from "Copper Water" I believe this would mean copper poisoning from the water. There seems to be some confusion about where the water came from, Elk creek of Grand River (the section of river called Grand River by local people is actually Thompson                                 Fork of the Grand River).
