This cemetery is reported to be at the south edge of the prison farm, adjacent to Cherry Grove on the north side. The early burials were originally in the prison and were moved to a common grave noted with the symbol * ahead of the given name. The listings I have are from the death book and information received from the Iowa State Penitentiary. © 2005 Old Fort Genealogical Society
