Mallory Cemetery Plaque - Confederate Soldiers
This plaque recognizes those buried here in unmarked graves from the town of Burris City (which no longer exists) and Confederate soldiers who are said to have died while being transported to prison at Rock Island. Burris City, at the confluence of the Iowa and Mississippi Rivers, was flooded in 1858 and many residents died during cholera or yellow fever epidemics. Mallory Cemetery is a beauitiful little cemetery about 9 miles southeast of Wapello on County Road 99. Thank you to Steve Hanken for notification of this monument. Photos taken 5/28/11.
