Holy Cross Cemetery

Welcome to the Holy Cross Cemetery page. This data was created by merging the information found in the Iowa Works Project Administration (WPA) 1930’s Graves Registration Survey website (0 records), the ongoing IAGenWeb Gravestone Photo Project (GPP) as of September 2009, and the ongoing IAGenWeb Obituaries (Obits) for Howard County. This table contains a wealth of information that was made available by volunteers taking pictures and transcribing data. Those volunteers are to be applauded, keep up the good work!

For comments or corrections to this table please contact the County Coordinator.

In the table below when you click on the W in column five a new window will open showing the data for that person listed at the WPA website. When you click on the G in the sixth column a new window will open showing the data for that person listed at the GPP website. When you click on the O in the seventh column a new window will open showing the obituary for that person listed on the IAGenWeb Howard County Obituaries website.
