Currently searching for other graves in this cemetery.
NOTE: Other Medlocks are buried at the Street Cemetery and the Summersville Cemetery. It is not certain whether or not some of these cemeteries are known by more than one name, or if some of the burials listed are accurate. Anyone with information is requested to contact me.
"This graveyard is hidden, now, inside the treeline, perhaps a half mile from the nearest road. The graves are collapsing due to livestock and the encroaching woods. Restoration of the graveyard is urgently needed." - Mike Medlock

NOTE: David Medlock's grave marker is still readable but just barely. Rachel's grave marker is no longer to be found. I believe it is still on site but due to collapsing of the cemetery rock walls, it is buried underneath. - Mike Medlock
Medlock, Mary Jane Bass Jul. 6, 1833 - Jun. 4, 1916. MO Death Cert.#23366: Daughter of Robert Bass (VA). Died at Cedar Grove. Informant Gus Medlock, Cedar Grove. Burial Jun. 6th 'On farm at home.'
UPDATE: Mary Jane Medlock is not buried here; the Medlock Farm
is not at this location. The property that the graveyard is located
at was owned at one time by the Summers Family. John Adam
Summers who is buried in this graveyard was a Baptist Minister and the Gladden
Valley Baptist Church that was also on the property. Three children
of David Medlock and Rachel Adams Medlock married children of John Adam Summers
and Virginia 'Jane' Stonecipher Summers [Walter Smith 'Brit' Medlock
married Mary Summers; Silas Henderson Medlock married Salome Summers;
Dicianna Elizabeth Medlock married William Adam Summers] thus making it a common
burial ground for both families.
BROTHER & SISTER:
Summers, Jesse b. abt. 1864 (MO). Son of William Daniel Summers (b. Abt. 1828, TN) & Minerva Springer (b. 09 Dec 1842, TN - d. 12 Apr 1912 Shannon Co MO).
UPDATE: The last census that Jesse was enumerated on was the 1880 Shannon County
Missouri census, so his death occurred between 1880 and 1900. Because of the
dates and styles of the other headstones in the cemetery, it is likely that he
died in the 1880's.
Summers, Jane b. abt. 1853 (MO). Daughter of William Daniel Summers & Minerva Springer.
UPDATE: Jane was last found
on the 1870 Shannon County Missouri census living with her grandparents, John
Adam Summers and Virginia 'Jane' Stonecipher Summers. The
name on her grave marker is very readable, however no dates are visible.
