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.

All cemetery names are linked to their Madison County address.


Penn Center Cemetery

The Penn Center Cemetery is located in Section 15 near the center of Penn Township (Township 77N , R 29 w) in Madison County, Iowa. It was established as a cemetery about 1888. Located in the northwest corner of Madison County , Penn Township was the last township of the county to be settled. Most of the land in the township was prairie and the lack of many trees made it almost impossible for the settlers to survive, until the Rock Island railroad (Des Moines to Omaha route) was built in 1868.
