Remembering the pioneers in Siouxland, Grant Cemetery

22 Oct

As I continue to wander around the Siouxland area I come across bits and pieces of history, mostly cemeteries that I am not acquainted with, in outlying smaller communities. Grant Cemetery in Monona County sits on a hill outside of Rodney, Iowa. A nice tribute to those who have passed on. One setting of the grave sites of some early pioneers under an expansive tree, looking west and forever seeing a sunset they possibly witnessed many times from this hill as they settled into a new place to begin their new lives.
