Welcome to the Springwater Cemetery Page. This document summarizing data for 142 graves is mainly based on a photo survey conducted by Bill waters in August of 2011 and was created by merging the information found in the Works Project Administration (WPA) 1930ís Graves Registration Survey (36 records), the ongoing Iowa Gravestone Photo Project (GPP) (124 records), the ongoing IAGenWeb Obituaries (Obits) (103 records) and the William Wade Hinshaw Index To Quaker Meeting Records State Historical Society of Iowa Library/Archives, Des Moines, IA These pages include 4 links to photos of the deceased). The left columns of the tabulation indicate the source of the summary data WPA (W), GPP (G) and Obits (O). Note that some records have more than one source; this is because in many cases the information is redundant. If there is a disagreement, your county coordinator has used his best judgment about which information to include in the compilation. This summary contains a wealth of information that was made available by volunteers taking pictures and transcribing data. Norman Hjelmeland is dedicating his efforts toward making the Springwater cemetery table complete and accurate. [Coordinator's note: The numbers in this summary do not "add up" for a variety of reasons, the main one being that many married women have 2 cemetery entries one with their maiden name and one with their married name]

Springwater mill stone

A grist mill was built on Canoe Creek in 1851-52 by G.V. Puntney for Beard and Cutler. The mill stones were shipped by boat from Galena, Ill. to Lansing, Iowa and on to the mill site by boat. In 1893, iron rollers replaced the stone buhrs. The mill stone above is on display at the Springwater Cemetery after being donated to the Winneshiek County Historical Society
