Is there a directory of graves in the Geneva Cemetery in or near Iola?

From: Paul Kuestersteffen
Date: Friday, September 08, 2000 05:27 PM

Geneva was a town that was about 4-5 miles north and then 4-5 miles west of Iola. Back 20+ years ago, when I was a little boy, my grandfather's farm was across the road from the cemetery. It was still being used for interments and in good shape at that time. My grandfather use to say that he was the gravedigger and maybe he was before his health failed (though I think now he was just pulling the leg of his grandson). I do remember decorations being put in a trash heap on his property following Memorial Day one year. I don't know if the cemetery is kept up anymore or not. I haven't been back that way in at least 6 years. I also don't know if there is a directory to it or not. Just wanted to give you a little further information on where it was located.

I am researching the Enoch Morris family, which settled in Geneva County in the early 1870's. They appear to have been preceded by the the George Esse family, the latter's son, Eugene, marrying the former's daughter, Alice. They had three children, Maude (who married Aldo Funston), Merritt and another child who died in infancy. Eugene had a sister who married E R Mabie.
