Bower Cemetery listings


In the Recordings of Walker Township Cemeteries published by the Moniteau County Historical Society, on page 148, it states:
Located on the Larry Rohrbach (1980s - present) farm just off Rt D north of California. Located in Township 46, Range 15, Section 34.

The information below was provided by Iola Potts.


James Albin and Alan Sparks visited this cemetery in November, 2007. 

The cemetery is located northwest of the house, in the middle of a field near the top of a hill. It is fenced and minimally maintained. It appears only 4 graves are now marked but there would be room for at least 4 more in the fenced area.



Pictured above, Jacob Bower's stone and a field rock undoubtedly marking another grave.  At right, 2 additional field stones.
