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.

Welty Cemetery

The Welty cemetery, on a bluff south of Middle river, in Section 14 of Webster township was given by the heirs of Peter Welty, March 31, 1891, and was recorded in the court house that it should be used for public burying grounds. The deed was signed by Martha E. and Miles H. Hart, John A. and Ida Welty, Mary Welty (widow of Peter), Caroline and Andrew M. Hart, Emanual M. and Elizabeth J. Welty. It is not on one of the main roads but is well kept. Other families there include the Schnellbachers, Wisslers and Krells. The cemetery is directly west behind the Oak Grove Church but a deep creek and steep ravine prevent access from that direction.
