Moniteau County Missouri

Marney Family Cemetery listings


According to page 63 of the Recordings of Burris Fork, Harrison and Pilot Grove Township Cemeteries published by the Moniteau County Historical Society it states:

The cemetery is seen on the 1876 Moniteau County atlas near Marney branch in the southwest corner of the NW 1/4 of the SW 1/4, Section 27, Township 44, Range 15. In 1985 (to the present) this is on the O'Brien farm. Four large rocks mark the corners of this small cemetery.


In late November 2001, Alan Sparks located this cemetery, still on the O'Brien farm, on the banks of the Marney branch. The stones were all laying flat and covered with dirt, leaves and mud. No fence existed and ample evidence of cattle existed.


Alan Sparks and James Albin visited this cemetery March 10, 2006. The stones were all laying flat. The stones were turned over and all engravings were gone except for Jonathan Marney. No dates were visible on any of the stones. The pictures were taken at this time.


Directions to cemetery: From California, take Hwy 87 south approximately 7 miles until coming to Gamble Road. Gamble cemetery will be directly across Hwy 87 from Gamble Road. Turn left (east) on Gamble Rd. and go until crossing a narrow one lane bridge.  The owners house, on whose land the cemetery is located, will be the 2nd house on the right.


Located here: 38.535798,-92.561452


Someone who knows where the stones are will have to accompany anyone trying to find them as they are approximately 1/2 mile south of the county road and are only accessible through the pastures.  Mr. O'Brien told James and Alan the old Marney house used to sit on the hillside overlooking this cemetery.
