   Keokuk - Blondeau Street Cemetery

From a book transcribed by Ernie Braida, Pastor of St. Peter's in Keokuk from 1978-1984;      

1844
      “The pioneer church of the village was of course Roman Catholic. A lot had been given on the corner of Blondeau and Second streets, upon which to build a church; meantime a house of two rooms was put up on the corner of the lot at the rear and here masses were said, one of the rooms being fitted up as a chapel, the priest living in the other. Weddings were also solemnized in the small chapel, one of which I attended, that of Elizabeth Hunt and Henry Louis [De Louis], my cousin and myself being the only witnesses. The lots surrounding the Church were used as a cem­etery. On one occasion twenty-five men were buried there who were killed by the explosion of the steamboat Mechanic in their endeavors to get off a large rock in the first chain of the rapids, from which circumstance it took the name of Mechanic rock."

Quarry Cemetery
The newest abandoned cemetery found in the county, more information is needed. One stone up on the hill reads: 
          Mary A. Billups, daughter of E. & E.A. Billups, died: Sept 20, 1859; age 3 years.
