Directions to Lost Creek Cemetery, near Fort Madison, Iowa: Take US 61 north out of Fort Madison. You will pass the Iowa State Penitentiary and climb the hill. Shortly after you reach the top of the hill will be County Road X38 going to the left (north). Follow County Road X38 north towards Augusta, Iowa for about 4 1/2 miles. At about 4 - 4 1/4 miles north of US 61, County Road J48 (heading east towards Wever, Iowa) will intersect County Road X38. Continue on X38 for about 1/4 mile across the bridge over Lost Creek. Immediately past the bridge, on the left (west) side is a road. It looks like the driveway to the mobile home there. Follow the road, bearing left away from the driveway, along the creek for about 1/4 mile until you come to the cemetery. Timothy's grave is in the far southeast corner of the cemetery.
