  Empire Cemetery-Photo by Linda Andersen Empire Cemetery is located in Lone Tree Township 1 mile East and 2 miles South of Galva south of the old town of Empire. It's a beautiful place and is one of the oldest cemeteries in the region. The earliest grave is that of Michael Sauer who lost his way home in a blizzard and died on February 27, 1873. The second grave sites were for the two sons of John Kohler who were killed when the rain-soaked walls of a crudely constructed sod house caved in during a storm.
