When I was searching newspaperarchive.com, I found a newspaper listing of the dead buried in various cemeteries in Chickasaw County, Iowa. The date of the paper was May 30, 1901 (Memorial Day). It listed Robert Beck, Co. G., 27th Iowa, buried Beck Cemetery. Was he moved?? I did not find a Beck Cemetery on Find a Grave.
