I will have to go back and take better pictures of their stone. It is hard to read from my photos. I won't be able to go back until it is warmer. The weather is supposed to be better at the end of this coming week. I had planned on going then.

From the original photo, Mary's stone appears to say she died Feb? or Dec? 19, 189? Probably 1892 or 1893?

If these are your ancestors, I can transfer them to you.

There is a law office in Traer that has the cemetery records.

Bauch Law Office
601 1st St, Traer, IA 50675
(319) 478-8645

I went there several years ago to find some grave locations, and I contacted them at a later time to report burrowing damage in several areas. The secretary told me that the cemetery board was aware of the burrowing damage and were addressing it. I had seen that type of burrowing before, where badgers tunnel into ground squirrel nests, so it wasn't that unusual.

There is a Buckingham Cemetery internment listing at this website, but they don't have much more specific information. I believe that the dates recorded are the internment dates. Otherwise, I don't think there is much available.

Good luck with your research.

RE: Samuel Besse
I was just concerned that you missed being able to read this stone. I've seen a lot of other graveyards in this area in very bad shape with stone toppled and broken into many pieces and was concerned this might have been one of them.

RE: Samuel Besse Photo
I'm confused why you say Samuel Besse's headstone is not readable. I went to the posted site and double clicked on the picture and everything clearly visable. Both Charity and Samuel. Have you tried clicking on the single view of this gravestone?

RE: Leni Ayers Groves
After I sent the message earlier today I looked Leni Groves up on Ancestry and saw she was married to Lafayette.
All photos have been added.
I enjoy the photos and research but I only add memorials for my direct family lines. I am glad you got them updated.
Glad to assist you.

RE: Leni Ayers Groves
Found her! Her name was enterred in the database as Levi instead of Leni. The grave record and map is correct.
I will get a photo in the next few days after the snow melts.
She is in Section 6 Lot 69 Grave 4.

RE: Cincinnatus Besse
Memorial# 142337885
Previous to his enlistment with the 54th OVI, he had enlisted in the 4th OH Volunteer Cavalry as a Farrier in Company F. He enlisted on 10/19/1861 and received a medical discharge on 10/4/1862. He was captured either on on 5/8/1862 while the 4th OVC was taking Nashville, TN or on 3/2/1862 (the confusion comes in as the official records shows 5/8 while a book on Jasper County shows 5/2). Somebody had filed a pension on him on 6/4/1891. He was held at Salisbury, NC until 6/2/1862. He arrived in NY on the steamer Guide on 6/9/1862.

He's listed in the History of Jasper County:

Hope this helps you out.
