Corporal James - 13 July 1814-25 Feb 1884 - Co. M , 8th MO S.M. Cay, son of Willis & Nancy There appears to be 2 markers for James; one on his grave and one on Susans. He was born in TN and moved to IN before the age of 2. This monument seems to be on Susans grave. She was born in Lawrence Co. IN 1823 and died in 1908 at Day, MO. James and Susan waere married 21 May 1835. I have now been told that this was the 1st marker for James, then a 2nd one put up to give his Army rank; so the 1st one was moved to Susans grave.
JOHN - 1820 - Brother of James & son of Willis and Nancy. One solid large flat rock covers the entire grave with headstone.
N.K. - died 1850s - Nancy, wife of Willis who died in 1861. His is a lone grave on the Earl Seaton farm on Hwy. 160 on the Taney-Stone County line. He had been dead several days so was buried where they found him. Nancys grave is at the foot of John.
ANNA & SON (above) - Auna (Houston) Keithley, dau. of David Houston and wife of John Henry born 1868. He was buried at Union Ridge Cemetery southwest of Clever. He is a descendant of Lewis Cass and John Keithley. J.W. - Sept. 1867 - 25 April 1868
The graves in this cemetery are in rows so husband and wife are not always together.
