Old French Church - east of Woolstock, IowaOld French Church and Cemetery - Woolstock, Iowa

August 2007 - My Father recently related his visit to the Old French Church, east of Woolstock, Iowa.  I visited several weeks later and collected photos. 

The Old French Church is three miles east of Woolstock, Iowa on County Road C-70, also known as 330th Street.  The Church and Cemetery sit on hill overlooking a stream.

The Cemetery has many Grandgeorge grave markers.  Below are several pictures of the markers of my predecessors.
