To locate Mayfield Cemetery, from Waynesville, take I-44 eastbound towards Rolla. Get off
on exit 169 to MO Highway J and take a right. Go exactly 4.5 miles down MO-J until you see
a gravel road on the right. Be careful, the road will sneak up on you because it is around
a curve and on top of a small hill. There is a sign on the road that says Mayfield Cemetery,
so that will tell you that you have found the correct road (No road number available).
Follow this road until you reach a dead end where you have to go left or right. Take the
road to the left and follow it all the way to the end. On the way down there, you may see
another sign made of metal that says Mayfield Cemetery, just continue following the road
you are on and you will find the cemetery.
Along the way to Mayfield you will pass the
gravesite of Eliza Jane (Laycock) Thomas on the left. I don't know the story of the Eliza
Jane (Laycock) Thomas burial. This grave is right along side the road and it seems that
it is visited quite often. This grave is a couple miles from the cemetery and is not
connected with the Mayfield cemetery in any way.
The Mayfield Cemetery has not been taken
care of for many years. It is very over grown and quite a shame that this has been allowed
to happen. I don't think another human
has been there for over 20 yrs.
Denise Seevers and I walked this cemetery in November of 2004.
