Union Cem Putnam & Scott Twps Fayette Co Iowa

Union Cemetery, NW corner of section 30, Putnam Twp, Fayette Co, Iowa. This is a walk-about as the sun was setting, and not a photo survey of markers. However, the cem. was walked north/south about every three rows with west to east pictures taken every few plots, plus panorama's, thus numerous surnames are visible on the plot markers. Union Cem. contains many of the surnames that pioneered in the prairie farmland to the west of Brush Creek/Arlington and to the south of Fayette village as it became possible to break/plow the tall/wet grass prairie region in the 1860's. Many of these surnames are linked to my Thompson line of Arlington and Fairfield Twp. iowaz@swbell.net or iowaz@hotmail.com
