Four weeks ago, I wrote about how to honor our ancestors who do not have a headstone on their grave. This Cemetery is the one that prompted my query. This is an old, abandoned, neglected Cemetery in Missouri. As a matter of fact. the town no longer exists. It has been incorporated into a town a few miles away and all that is left of the original are farms and the Cemetery.
The last burial in this Cemetery was in 1925. There are only 23 graves there and of those, 19 are related to me. This is the last one in this series.
