half of Page County, Iowa
To understand the area around
New Market, you need to look at this map of Page County. In the northeast
corner of East River township, you will see Dayton and Memory. The county
lines jog west at this point and the Main Street shared by Dayton and Memory
was the county line. Memory was in Taylor County and Dayton was in Page
The Memory Cemetery is just
south of where Dayton is marked and I have put a black rectangle where
the cemetery is in section 1.
If you then look at the
map of Taylor County, you will see that there is no cemetery in Mason township.
Memory Cemetery was the cemetery used by Mason township, Taylor County,
