Moniteau County Missouri

Cook Cemetery listings


 

Directions to cemetery: Located on a knoll about 200 yards west of Highway 179. This is about 1/4 mile south of Sandy Hook, on the west side of Hwy 179 and just south of Moniteau Creek Rd.  It can be easily seen from the highway in the middle of cattle pasture. From further research, there must have been a large 2 story brick house that burned in 1946 that stood somewhere near this cemetery.

 

According to the Listings of Linn Township Cemeteries, it is in the SW 1/4 of the SW 1/4 of Section 13, Township 46, Range 14, on land now owned (in 1968) by Harold Gentzsch. Original survey taken February 3, 1968. In 2008, Harold Gentzsch still lives across Hwy 179 from this cemetery and it is unknown if he still owns the land the cemetery is on.

 

In 1968 the condition was described as: Possibly several other graves here but due to cattle having pastured here for many years, the markers are all laying flat and partially covered with dirt and dead leaves.

 

James Albin and Alan Sparks visited this cemetery December 30, 2008 when the pictures were taken. In 2007, the cemetery was restored with the stones getting new bases and set upright and a fence put around the stones for protection from the cattle.
