Mill.Grove/McAlavey Cemetery
Lost cemetery on west side of Brush Creek in sec 3, Fairfield.Twp, near the Illyria.Twp line.


…Suspected surnames buried in the Mill.Grove Cemetery are Rowley, Gardner/Gardiner, Jonathan Cline, two infants of Solon Barnes, bz/2008.

...West.Union.Argo, 1909Apr06:  "People were very much startled recently to see a coffin protruding from the bank of Brush Creek about 20ft above the creek bed in section 3 of Fairfiled.Twp, several miles north of Arlington, and close to Wadena.  Through Supervisor Walrath the matter has been looked up in its legal aspects, and referred to the board of health.  William McLavey, an old settler, recalls the fact that the cemetery was located there about fifty years ago, some of the bodies buried there being those of Mr. Rowley, members of the Gardner/Gardiner family, and possibly Jonathan Cline.  The present generation did not know the place had ever been used for a burial ground.

…Paper article of April 8, 1909. "Quite a little excitement was occasioned by the fact that an old burying ground of some of the very earliy settlers of this township (Fairfield and Illyria) was found by some parties down near Rawson’s Mill by the fact that one coffin stuck out of the ground about a foot and a half. The burying ground is on what was the old William McAlavy farm and Mr. McAlavy (this is likely son Charles as William died in 1892. Charles the liveryman in Wadena, may have taken over the farm for awhile?) who has been confined to his bed for several years is the only source of information in regard to these early pioneers of this part of Iowa. Mr. McAlavy says he remembers the people and that the last burial was made in this little plot about 54 years ago (1865). When the bodies were buried they were a good ways from Brush Creek but it has been continually changing its course and wearing away the bank until it has undermined these graves and the black walnut casket with boards abut an inch and a half thick sticks out of the side of the Brush Creek bank, about seven feet up. There are signs that still others are buried there and uless something is done the entire outfit will be washed into the creek. The lower bones of the body in the coffin exposed are gone and the bone from the knew to the thigh measured one and a half feet long. Whether the remainder of the bones from the knee up still remain was not ascertained as Mr. Holderson who was sent by supervisor Walrath to investigate could not see. It is said that last summer parts of human skeletons were found along the creek. These coffins were seen floating down the creek. The coffins were made of rough native black walnut and were very heavy and have stood the test of time remarkably well.
…As nearly as can be learned David Rowley, a son of one of the buried bodies, lives at Albia, Iowa. It is said that two or three persons by the name of Garner were also buried in this place. Also a man by the name of Cline and other who no one remembers now. The bank where the coffin protrudes from is twenty feet high and it is about seven feet up this bank that the grewsome relic is seen.
…The burying ground is located almost on the Illyria and Fairfield township line in section 3, of this township (Fairfield). It has been known by the old residents down that way that this burial ground was there but it was not known that the creek was doing such work by the county officials until the sheriff was notified and township trustees of this township notified.
...The people buried here must have been located there before the county was organized and it is probable that if any records of them were ever made they were burned with the old Fayette county court house when it was consumed.
…They probably located down there near Mill Grove when the nearest railroad point was Manchester or Dubuque and when the wild game was plenty in those parts..
…The finding of this body created no little excitement and the matter will be taken up by the board of supervisors this week and the remains well be properly cared for. In the meantime our people who are apt to strole along Brush Creek at this particular point will be careful what they pick up.

Do not trust as totally valid any tree/report data.  Often World Connect or Ancestry trees/data were utilized as a foundation upon which to add material gleamed from obits, articles, histories, biographies, stories, burials, censuses and other data collected.  My primary interest is generally the pioneer history and includes linking village and neighborhood surnames together for several of the early generations.  Family connections, locations and other data may have to be speculated in order to continue a complex series of inter-related projects.  My web pages are primarily personal study projects for note keeping, but can also jump start others.  I have a huge number of projects started and rarely return to edit/update material unless interest is rekindled.  Any web pages online are usually linked off the 'Index Page.'  Numerous projects are not put on web pages but are in draft form or in the form of photo albums on the 'Photo Hosting Site.'   I may have material for research use in storage, plus will/can upload other people's material if appropriate.
