SCOTLAND COUNTY CEMETERIES

If you know of a cemetery which should be listed here, or have more information on any of the cemeteries below, please send e-mail to John Slavin at jslavin@marktwain.net. There is a 3 volume set of cemetery inscriptions for Scotland County by Eugene Dodge. (Published in 1971 in St. Louis, MO, by Wilma Dunlap) It has apparently not been microfilmed by the LDS.  A 'Barker Cemetery' listing is available in a book called 'Cemeteries of Grove Township, Davis County, Iowa' by the Davis County Genealogical Society. (FHC Fiche #6117832) The entire book is 27 pages in length.

The prior maintainer of this site listed a few of the cemeteries and tied them to a USGS map that was way off the mark. The references below relate to a map of Scotland County that I prepared. It's not particularly pretty, but I think it gets the job done. Here is the map. (I intend to give you more information about the map and as time permits the link will be here). The numbers below will correspond to a number on the map. Most of the information regarding the cemeteries and their locations was provided by Lee Ann Russell and I wish to acknowledge her support. There is a more complete map at the Scotland County library which shows many, if not all, of these cemeteries. In addition I imagine you can purchase a plat of the county from the Scotland County courthouse (that's where I got mine several years ago) that will show many of these cemeteries, although they aren't labled. I just didn't have enough room to show all the county roads here.

As this page develops some of you may have a much more comprehensive description of the cemetery, or a contact person, or other information you would like me to list. Just let me know. Incidentally, I intend to post an alpha list of these cemeteries as time permits.
