Search Starr Cemetery:

The Starr or Draper Cemetery got its start when Ira D. Draper gave a little more than an acre of land for use as a cemetery when his son, Jasper, died in 1867 at the age of 25. Another son, Lewis, who died in July 1866 at the age of 23 had been buried Iliff Cemetery. His body was then moved to the Starr Cemetery. These young men had been prisoners at Andersonville in Georgia and never regained their health after their return from the Civil War. They share a common headstone. The Cemetery is located 3 miles northwest of Dawson in Grant Township, section 8.
