Lease's Grove Cemetery
 

  

Entrance and overview of Lease's Grove
Photos & directions contributed by Allen & Carole Martin

The cemetery is located approx. 1/2 mile south of Teheran, off County Road 2950. Teheran is located on Route 10 between Easton & Mason City. Turn south on CR 2950 (there is a grain elevator at the intersection of Route 10 & CR 2950). Approx. 1/2 south of Route 10, turn into the driveway of the first house on the right. Continue straight past the house onto a gravel land for approx. 1/4 mile. The cemetery sits on a hill surrounded by trees. If the ground is not too soft, you can drive up the hill. If traveling east on Route 10 from Easton, shortly before reaching Teheran, look to the south and you will be able to see the stones on the hillside. You cannot see the cemetery from CR 2950. The cemetery is in pretty good shape. Many of the stones have broken but are repaired. It may be a good cemetery to probe for buried stones.
