Bio and Links
Bio Photo Steve has been interested in geanealogy for several years, Kathy enjoys visiting ancestrial homesteads. We became interested in Union County cemeteries a few years ago when we volenteered to install signs at most of the rural cemeteries in County. It was a joint effort of the Union County Genealogical Society and the Union County Engineer's Office. Durring this project we came across the Claypool Cemetery south of Thayer, IA. It was completely overgrown with brush and weeds and several of the stones were on the ground. Over the past five years, with the help of family and others, the brush has been removed and the stones reset. We plan continue to make improvements both here and to some of the other neglected cemeteries of the county.

Hi Steve,

The Shenandoah Public Library has a book with names and locations of graves. If you ask at the counter, they will know what you are talking about. It doesn't have recent graves but would have what you are looking for. They also have a directory of obituaries in case you want to make a copy from an old or recent newspaper.

Best regards,
Kristi

Thank you and all those who volunteered to clean up and restore this wonderful old cemetery. A dear friend of the family has Claypool ancestors buried here and I don't think she knows that all this work has been done. Thanks!!

Thank you so very much for the tombstone photo for Philip Cutchall and thank you for volunteering for Find A Grave. This is a wonderful site!
I am assuming that his wife, Hannah (Madden) Cutchall was not buried there.
