Shannon County Cemeteries



a/k/a Old Baptist Cemetery


Winona Shannon Co MO


Graves Photos

Located at Winona on Old Hwy. 60 in southwest part of town, between the intersections of south Hwy. 19 and north Hwy. 19.
(Just up the hill from the car wash, on the left, and directly across the highway from the senior citizens apartments and Trace Pond).

This is a very old cemetery. Many years ago a sink hole appeared and a lot of graves disappeared.
There are obvious locations of graves throughout the cemetery that are unmarked, sunken in or overgrown, and unidentifiable.
 It is certain that all the burials in this cemetery are not listed, but as many as are known are here.


Please contact me with additions or corrections.

A married daughter of the Duncan's, Mrs. Crawford, and her daughter, Gert Crawford, were killed. The Duncan's son was rescued. Eleven people were killed in the flood.

NOTE: Shannon County Cemeteries Book has that the grave is marked with a triple marker. It may be that the parents are listed on the other sides of the marker shown as Mattie's. The only photo I have is the one with Mattie's name listed.
