ss means "same stone"

Completed by Mary Holub on June 24, 2008, with additional burial updates posted as more burials become known.

Index to the Westfied Cemetery gravestone photos on the IA GenWeb Gravestone Photo Project. "Thanks to Mary for the gravemarker photos. She did a fine job, despite the fact that she arrived in the morning--all the tombstones faced East. That made for some shadows in a few of the photos. Still an excellent resource for those of us who have ancestors buried there!"

Thanks to Barb Kamradt who also read these stones in July 2002.

There are no burial records for this cemetery so only stone transcriptions are available. Occasionally there is death notices that indicate unmarked burials and more recent burials in this cemetery.
