Wow, that is one old bone yard. Lots of interesting tales of life in those bones.
I like the weathered tree. That sturdy tree would have been a sapling when the person was buried.

I am the post historian for my American Legion post.  I have been gathering the names of all the Civil War veterans from the two townships served by my post.  I have been auditing every cemetery the last several weeks.  Here is another photo.

Good photo, it tells a lot doesn't it?
I could spend hours nosing around old cemeteries.

In one cemetery in my region some bonehead marked all the Union Civil war veteran stones with bronze Confederate markers.  I am working to get that corrected ASAP.

Passed by this yard during work today, had to turn around for a snoop.
The nearby village is Washington, Ontario. The landscape in SW Ontario seems very similar to that of Iowa.

Yep.  I would feel right at home there, I think.  Nice shot.

I guess you missed the inscription on the stone.

I would imagine your Jewish Cemetery stones were relocated rather than desecrated. I believe nowadays in some locations indefinite tenure is long gone.
