Iowa Soldiers Orphan Monument
Annie Whittenmyer, along with many other accomplishments, started orphan homes for children of Civil War Veterans. The Davenport home was across the street from Oakdale Memorial Gardens and 246 orphans are buried here. This monument was erected in 1884. Also shown is an example of the marker for one of the orphans who died in 1866. The entrance to the cemetery has a map showing the location of the Orphan's Lot. Oakdale Memorial Gardens is located at 2501 Eastern Avenue. Thank you to Dustin Oliver for information about this monument and the Orphan's Lot. Photos taken 9/28/12.
