Has a lot of useful information regarding past towns, their names, etc. I originally found this site while researching "Border Plains Cemetery" that is supposed to be located in Webster County, Iowa. I have not been able to physically locate this cemetery, wondering if it no longer exists, and if not, where would the grave sites been relocated to? Still  researching.                   (2013)

Barbara Swigart - Council Bluffs, IA -  Glad I stumbled across this site, it should help with my Family Search. To my surprise my maternal relatives were Latter Day Saints and finding a map of the Mormon migration west helped understand were to look for them. I hope someone might have something similar with the towns that the Mormons started as they traveled west. GREAT JOB on your website!    08-25-2014
