My focus on visiting this cemetery back in 2003 was to view the grave of my 2nd great grandfather Daniel D. Spracklin. He was the husband of Elizabeth Spracklin who was featured in the Titler Cemetery posting dated September 11, 2010. Elizabeth died on 10 March 1859 and Daniel remarried on 21 November 1863 in Marengo, Iowa to Sarah Blacketer Allgood.
I did not record the Dayton Community cemetery but I do have overview photographs and photographs of my 2nd great grandfather's tombstone which also includes Sarah's information. I also took photos of the tombstone of their youngest son Alfred. The family lore in the cause of his death is that he might have been bitten by a snake. I have yet to confirm that story.

The Iowa County Gen/Web site has started adding cemetery histories and you can find information there at:
