There were no railroads, no church cemeteries in the days when people first came to this valley.  There were no funeral homes, no neighbors helped neighbors when a loved one died.  When there was a death, the burial was the next day.

When John Robert Little, the uncle of Bessie Gilbert, died he left his widow, Lillie, and four children.  The oldest child was eleven years old.  Lillie raised her family in the Howard Community, on the land homesteaded by the Littles.

Joseph H. Henderson who is buried in the Howard Cemetery is the kin of John Robert Little's wife.

There are several unnamed and unmarked graves in this cemetery.  Only two graves have names and dates.  There are no tombstones.

Information furnished by Mrs. Bessie Little Gilbert

Henderson, Joseph H. - d. 1917

Little, John Robert - 1854-1914

Please visit the Polk County Library.  There is a genealogy section at the library.  Or, check as the Polk County Genealogy Society (Mary L Broderick)  is attempting to put all of this information on the FindAGrave site along with the Markers for the Graves.  It is a massive undertaking.
