Osage Township: Section 2, Township 40 North, Range 13 West Miller County, MO.
From Tuscumbia take highway 17 south across the River Bridge. Shortly after the bridge you will come to the junction of highway 52 on the left. Turn onto highway 52 and go 7.2 miles. At this point on the left of you will be at an opening with wood on one side of the gate and metal on the other. There is also an old cultivator visible from the road. This gate is also just west of an earth home. To get to the cemetery you need to park your vehicle and walk northeasterly, toward the river, for approximately .1.5 miles to the cemetery. This cemetery is on private property on the old Clark place. This cemetery is unkempt and in poor condition. If you are coming out of St. Elizabeth the wooden/metal gate is 2.4 miles west of state road PP.
Since these died all in the same year it is possible that the cause may have been typhoid fever or something.
