Van Fossen Cemetery (Old Adel Cemetery) (Gibson Cemetery) (Rodenbaugh Cemetery)
Dallas County, Iowa

Lat: 4136'38"N, Lon: 9402'47"W
Section 31 Adel Twp

Contributed by Frank Stanley, Sep 07, 2002, edited May 16, 2004 [stanley9099@yahoo.com]. Total records = 83.

From the crossroads of Highway 169 & Highway 6 in Adel Iowa. Go West on Hwy 6 (Greene St.) two miles. The cemetery is appox 1/4 mile north of Hwy 6. There are two cement posts. That mark the lane to the cemetery.

The cemetery was Quick Deeded to the City of Adel Iowa on the 30th day of July 1910. {Source} Deed Record, Dallas County, Iowa #192. It is my feeling that this cemetery is not maintained as well as the other cemetery within the City Limits of the city of Adel Iowa.

I walked and read this cemetery on 12 Oct 2001. It is as complete as I am able to make it. I have transcribed from my own readings plus names that are mark with a * are from a old transcripton of the cemetery. No on new burials.
