Subject: Where in Fort Dodge would you be buried if you attended the Congregational Church in 1888?

My 3x great grandmother, Hannah Wood, died in Fort Dodge Oct 1, 1888. It says in her obituary that funeral services were held at the Congregational Church, but it did not say where exactly interment was. I have called Oakland Cemetery and they do not have a record of her being buried there. Was there a cemetery associated with the Congregational Church? I don't think the same church is in operation anymore.......her daughter, Mary Jane Wood, is buried in Oakland, but she died about 10 years after her mother.

Any help or insight is appreciated, thank you!
