Some of these histories of cemeteries of Madison County were originally published in the Winterset Madisonian newspaper on August 26, 1953, July 1956 and July 18, 1958. They have been transcribed and posted with the permission of Ted Gorman, owner of the Winterset Madisonian newspaper.


Fidler Cemetery

Mention is made of this cemetery because of the relationship with the Thornburg’s Osburns, Dorrells and Samuel Crawford – early settlers who are buried at the Primitive Baptist Cemetery. James Fidler was one of the first persons to die in Madison County, in October 1846, and at that time there was no cemetery, so he was buried on his land in Section 9. As others died they were buried near him. Others buried in the Fidler Cemetery were a child of David D. Henry, Jane Casebier, 16 years, James Thornburgh, his son-in-law, Elza Tremble, Sarah and Anderson Crawford, Sarah Pender, Mrs. Mahala Simmons, David Cracraft, and daughter, a child of Asa Hills and a child of Phillip M. Boyles.
