Sharon Sturek of Nebraska and Jerry Hall of Florida have been attempting to save the Price Cemetery located near Rhodes, Iowa, for a number of years.  A description of the cemetery ground was included in a survey of the farm ground in 1989.  The county auditor has agreed that this is sufficient evidence of the perimeters of the cemetery.  It is hoped that a fence can be erected this fall to protect the cemetery from livestock and encroachment by farm implements.  A "compliance officer" from the Office of the State Cemetery Regulator was dispatched to speak with the landowner and county officials in November, 2005.  Pat Shaw and Sharon Sturek visited the site and dowsed a number of graves on November 5.
