THE FARM PLOT


Located in FRANKLIN TOWNSHIP (Section 27), Des Moines County, Iowa, you will find the THIE FARM PLOT. This little cemetery was discovered about 1971 by Mr. Jerry Brown by accident. It sits on the brow of a very high bank. Only three of the stones have names on them. However, there were about 15 limestone rocks sitting on their edge - some in rows, some were flat on the ground. Mr. Donald Thie who lives just Southwest has said that there were about 60 graves in this farm plot - but not sure that anyone knew who was buried there.
