Caledonia Cemetery

Located NW1/4, Sec. 10, T67, R29, Lotts Creek Township, Ringgold County, Iowa. Recorded for the Ringgold County Historical Society by Mr. and Mrs. Charles P. Bennett of Mount Ayr, October 1978. Originally the cemetery was located on the main road west from the hamlet of Caledonia. It is now one-fouth mile north of County road J55. The earliest known burial was in 1858 and the latest in 1955. Peter Walter, first postmaster and one of the founders of Caledonia, was buried here in May of 1859. The cemetery contains almost as many unmarked graves as monuments. Updated as of November, 2000 by Rick Wiley of Diagonal, Iowa.
