Marcia, when you first wrote Luzerne, I was thinking of Irving which is
between Dysart and Belle Plaine. Luzerne is between Belle Plaine and
Blairstown isn't it? I have been away for many years and sometimes my brain
One time when I was in Vinton, I acquired a county map with dots on it which
designate the cemeteries and a listing of the Township Officers. The township
clerk is suppose to have the records for the cemeteries in that township.
Some of the records are poorly maintained. The township officers are men and
women who have other jobs and lives but the ones I called were willing to
look up information for me. This list is from 1991 and therefore outdated in
terms of names (It also does not include phone numbers) so I would suggest
that others who are interested contact the county clerk for updated
information. The county also has a "rough" listing of the cemeteries in the
county with plat directions and list of the treasurer of the cemetery
association for each. This has addresses. As I said the listings I have are
several years old now.
Luzerne is on the border of Iowa and Leroy Counties. There are four
cemeteries listed in Iowa Co. and three in Leroy. If you need other
information I can type what is listed on the sheets.
