Van Buren Township, Van Buren County, Iowa
Northwest Corner of Section 11

Gilbert Cemetery is one of the smaller cemeteries not among those indexed by the Van Buren County Genealogical Society.
You will find a listing of their available cemetery books on their
web site.

This cemetery is on the present (in 1965) Hubert Gilbert farm, about 3/4 mile west from the house - and on a high bluff looking down on the Des Moines river.  This is a heavily wooded area, and in spite of the height of one monument it was difficult for Mrs. Gilbert to locate it.  The cemetery is listed as Gilbert Cemetery on 1930 DAR records, hence this name is retained.
