Miller Cemetery listings


 

Located approximately 1/4 mile back in a field on the Missouri River bluffs just north of Sandy Hook in Township 46, Range 14, Section 2.

 

This cemetery has only 14 marked graves.  James Albin and Alan Sparks visited this cemetery April 20, 2007 and found it in much the same shape as described below.  There is a fence surrounding the cemetery that would keep out any livestock.

Also, there are 8 graves marked with rough hewn lime stones, not lettered.  Possibly more graves are here but undetected due to trees, woods and buck brush.
