I am hoping that someone might have an old photo of what was known as the Maple Grove
School. It was a one room school house located just north of Maquoketa IA - would have
been to the left of (now) H61 as you are driving north. There is only a field located
there today of course. My grandmother, Nettie Heide attended school there as a young girl
(she was born in 1891). I have a letter my grandmother wrote where she describes sitting
on the school house steps, watching the hearse go by pulled by black horses - taking her
grandma Mary Liston Campbell to be buried at what I know is called Tilton Cemetery. This
is near the Randy Diesing (think I spelled that correctly)farm...Tilton Cemetery is an old
pioneer cemetery located on the Diesing farm. Any information or especially a picture of
this would be wonderful to have. Thanks.
