Branson Cemetery Sign

This cemetery is located south of Missouri Valley, Iowa, and north of Honey Creek, Iowa.  It is actually in Pottawattamie County, but contains many burials for early St. John’s Township, Harrison County, Iowa, pioneers.  Take Highway 30A south of Missouri Valley, crossing under the Interstate bypass, until you see the sign for Branson Cemetery on the left.  It is east of Highway 30A about mile and is well maintained on a gravel road.

Recorded June 2001.  Every effort was made to record the information as accurately as possible.  This is only a partial listing.
