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.

Union Chapel South Cemetery

The Union Chapel South Cemetery is located in Section 7 of South township, and was given on May 11, 1861 by Thomas Runkle and M. C. and Mary DeBord. Some of the early settlers buried there are members of the Runkles, Brassfield, Guilliam and Moore families. The first church near the cemetery burned down and in 1891, a new church was built. However, the church did not have many members and in 1951 it was sold to Ralph and Jack Hammans and was dismantled and moved. The deed of this cemetery was filed at the recorder’s office by W. E. and Emma Freeman and G. R. and Stena M. Freeman on December 14, 1905 and September 6, 1906.
