Click Here to Search Surnames in Grave Marker Inscription Volumes
for Story County Cemeteries
One of the most valuable tools for Story County family researchers are the 13 volumes of Grave Marker Inscriptions which were recorded by the Story County Genealogical Society in the early 1990's. Each volume contains it's own index. There are also two additional volumes which index all of the volumes. This is a very well-done marker survey, with very few errors. (Of course, grave marker information may itself contain errors.)
Unfortunately, this resource is underutilized because the average researcher does not have access to the indices (unless they have access to them at a local library). That is why I have created my own index to these volumes. By checking this index, you can determine if certain of the volumes are likely to be of use to you. If you notice several family members listed in a volume, I strongly recommend purchasing the volume. In addition to the obvious information, sometimes you get clues to colateral lines based upon burial patterns.
The following volumes are available for purchase from the Iowa Genealogical Society:
Number Volume Name I Lincoln, Sherman and Warren Townships including Cities of Zearing & McCallsburg II Howard Township including City of Roland III Lafayette Township including City of Story City IV Richland, Milford, and Franklin Township including City of Gilbert V Grant and New Albany Townships including City of Colo VI Washington Township except Ames Municipal Cemetery VII Collins Township including City of Collins VIII Union Township including Cityof Cambridge IX Indian Creek Township including City of Maxwell X Palestine Township including Cities of Sheldahl and Slater XI-A Ames Municipal Cemetery (Part 1) XI-B Ames Municipal Cemetery (Part 2) XII Nevada Township including City of Nevada XIII General Index (Part 1) IX General Index (Part 2)
