On page 210 of the Recordings of Walker Township Cemeteries
published by the Moniteau County Historical Society, it states:
Located on Dwayne Wood (2010) farm on Rt KK north of California. It had a rock wall around it. No stones can be found. It is believed that one adult and two or three infants may be buried here.
GPS Location: 38.686632,-92.587673
Information has been discovered that indicates this may have been the burial place for William and Jane Christian. Their home (pictured above, right) still stands not far to the northeast of the cemetery.
From an obituary in the March 30, 1882 California Democrat: William Christian died March 21, 1882 aged 89 years. No cemetery is listed in the obituary but as was still practiced in that time period, he was probably buried in the family cemetery.
From an obituary in the April 30, 1896 California Democrat: Mrs Jane C Christian died Friday last (April 24, 1896) aged 86 years, 6 months and 2 days. Widow of William Christian. Daughters Mrs Lewis Broyles, Mrs Reuben Martin and son, Dr John Christian.
