Iowaville Cemetery
Van Buren County, Iowa
Uploaded 12/14/2002


The original grave site of Black Hawk. The exact date of Black Hawk's death is not clear....some sources give the date as September 15, 1838 while his grave marker says October 4. His grave was later robbed and his body stolen. The body was later recovered, and shipped to Burlington, Iowa, where it was put on display in a museum. In 1855, the museum burned to the ground, and the body was destroyed.
