Elk Creek Cemetery
Elk, Clayton County, Iowa
(Oct. 30, 1830 - Dec. 31, 1903),
(Comments: Co. D., 27th Iowa Inf.)
Note the tombstone inscription says Dec. 28, 1904, but see obituary. Pension records say he died Dec. 31, 1903. Also note that the obituary says he was buried beneath a large cedar tree on the old homestead east of Edgewood, so this tombstone may be a cenotaph.
