(From Find A Grave: Cemetery notes and/or description:

Cemetery is located at 37 degrees 08' 22" North x 91 degrees 07' 48" West. Cemetery

defined by wire fencing about 25 feet x 15 feet.


There are at least five marked grave sites within the fence, but only Nancy Campbell's

has an inscription. Other stones were probably not marked or if they were, time and the

elements have removed the stone's information. There were several small stones that might

be for deceased children.

The Campbells were original homesteaders in this area ca 1858 and 1860. Nancy was married to James Campbell and they show up on the early census' in this area.


All information and photographs pertaining to this cemetery has been provided by Mr. Randy Long. It was brought to

Mr. Long's attention that the cemetery had been damaged by crews cleaning the right of ways for the power lines in

the summer of 2010. Mr. Long is in the process of seeing that someone takes responsiblity for those damages and

sets a new perimter fence.

Nancy's stone was run over and pushed into the dirt, but the extent of any possible damage is unknown at this time.

It is preferred to wait until someone takes responsibility and sees to it that a professional makes any needed repairs

and re-sets the stone. Thank you Randy!  

New pictures added of cemetery after repairs were made in 2011.

Thanks again to Randy Long who allowed me to post them. ~ Cathy Hill
