In the 1970s and 1980s, a few enterprising Davenport women set out to preserve Scott County History by creating a comprehensive index to the rural cemeteries. They did a lot of walking and braved inclement weather to record the names and dates of Scott County’s past. Originally published in two volumes, the Scott County Cemetery Records are now searchable online from anywhere in the world thanks to the dedicated staff of the Scott County Library System.

With permission from Scharlott (Goettsch) Blevins and Lorraine (Edgman) Duncan, two of the original transcribers, and Donna McNamara, president of the Scott County Iowa Genealogical Society, Scott County Library System staff entered each name and transcription exactly as printed in the two original volumes.

SCLS staff at times assumed last names based on family relations or plot labels, recording them in [brackets]. Any comments by the original transcribers regarding the condition of the stones or the transcription itself were also recorded in [brackets]. Known typos from the original work were noted with [sic]. Plot numbers were taken from the original transcription. These numbers may not correspond with official cemetery plot numbers, particularly for those cemeteries that are still active today.
