This is from the list of transcribed headstones back in Sept. 1975. Ted & Dot Graves transcribed the cemetery.

I visited this cemetery in early August 2008 and not all these stones were found. I am researching Edward & Lucy R. King Perkins. They married in 1849 in Marion County Indiana and came to the area around 1851 or 1852. I have found about 12 families came from Marion County IN to Fremont County, Iowa.

This cemetery was deeded to the city Sidney but is not cared for. It is fenced. Most of the people in the area don't seem to know it exits. I have dates if anyone sees someone they are researching. I would like to see that it gets cared for.

Notice the Rev. Baker is buried by Edward and Lucy. May not be anything but could be. It notes he was a Methodist preacher and arrived with his wife Mary Ann and family
about July 1st 1853. The area was known as both Camp Creek and Walnut Grove settlement.
It says the Bakers died within one day of each other in March 1894 and were buried in a common grave in this cemetery near their home.
