Sunday in Iowa...


The New Salem Cemetery in Lynnville, Jasper County, Iowa

Edward James Bebb, Civil War Congressional Medal of Honor Recipient, is buried here among others.


  1. I like these photos. I looked up this soldier and discovered he is connected somehow to Mt. Pleasant IA, my home town. I have never heard him mentioned as a local hero so maybe he didn't live there for long before moving west. Thank you for highlighting him. Details of the past bring it to life for me.

  2. If you have any other records or pictures of this gravestone I would love it. Edward J Bebb is my 4th great uncle.

  3. Here are two websites that I located for information on Edward James Bebb:
