In Stanberry MO, starting from E Main St, drive north onto US
Hwy 169 north for 1.88mi, then left onto state Hwy B and continue
north for 2.63 miles, turn left or west left for 1.40 miles, then
turn right or north for about ½ mile.
This cemetery was established on land owned by Judge William
Enoch Liggett c. 1863 in the Alanthus Grove area. It was then
owned by his first son, John Thomas Liggett & Sadie Finders who
had their house on the property.
The cemetery is now on land owned by Gene Stowell. It is just
inside the gate on your left as you turn into his property, at
the bottom of the hill. Much of the time it is overgrown and difficult
to see. One should always obtain permission to go through the
gate into the cow pasture to the graveyard.
I have visited this cemetery several times. Some of the information
is from the Gentry Geneological Society library. I completed my
transcription on Sep 30, 2011.
