Wicker Cemetery

Thanks to Patrick Murray for graciously donating this transcription to the Polk County IAGenWeb site.

Sometime called "CLARK" cemetery. Located in Camp twp. Polk Co. in the NW corner of section 32. Cemetery is on top a hill, north side of the road (County Y ) which runs between the abandoned town of Adelphi and the town of Runnells. Residents of the area tell the story that the first people buried there were 2 transients who fell ill and died while camping in the area. No stones mark their place of burial. Earliest stone found in the cemetery is for Nancy Wallace who died 1849. Many stones are missing from this cemetery. Residents report of seeing a pile of broken headstones, which mysteriously disappeared and were never found. The old part of the cemetery is on the north east side of the road that which runs through the cemetery.

( an asterisk (*) at a name indicates possibly no headstone and information is from Richardson funeral home at Carlise and or information from a relative. See end for listing ).
