Tonight I will share some pictures from Green Mound Cemetery which is near Trenton, Iowa.
In this picture from my post Leeper Land you can see the cemetery on the right edge. The red outline is the quarter section that belonged to Absolom Leeper.
I will start with a picture of the grave stone of Absalom Leeper my 4th Great Grandfather. He died in 1896 and the age on the stone is shown at 106 years. However, he was only 97 at his death. I am still doing some research for a post which will help explain why his age is wrong.
Sarah Perkins Leeper Moore died in 1858 at the age of 30 and was the first of the family to be buried in the cemetery.
Update: Sarah was originally buried in the Moore Cemetery near Washington, Iowa. Her remains were moved to Green Mound in about 1910.
One of the sons of Absalom is also buried in the cemetery. Dr. John Alexander Leeper died in Anamosa, Iowa in 1890, but was brought home for burial.
My Third Great Grandfather, William Absolom Leeper, moved away from Henry County and died in 1913 in Guthrie County, Iowa. He was 87 years old.
As I wrote this tonight I found that I need to do some more research on this family group. I am missing a bit of information that should be in my records.
