Moniteau County Missouri

Shull-Hickcox Cemetery listings


Located in Township 46, Range 14, Section 13.


Directions to cemetery: This cemetery is located about 1/8 mile north of the Cole County line, about 100 yards east of Highway 179, high on the bluffs of the Missouri River between the Moniteau Creek and the Union Pacific Railroad, on the old Rosenmiller farm. From Sandy Hook, take Hwy 179 south a short distance until coming to Moniteau Creek Road. Turn left and when getting to the top of the hill, an unusual looking house will be on the left. Using this as a reference, the cemetery will be approximately 1/4 to 3/8 of a mile south of this house and approximately 1/8 mile from the Cole County line.  The cemetery is on the bluff overlooking the Missouri River and Moniteau Creek with cedar trees between it and the road making it impossible to see the cemetery from the road.


GPS Location: 38.728409,-92.397662

James Albin and Alan Sparks visited this cemetery December 30, 2008 and found it is not maintained but with all the stones upright. The two Hickcox stones were leaning against a tree on the north end of the cemetery.  As referenced above, several crude, rock markers were found in this cemetery.

Mrs. Jane Gregory aged 95 years died at the home of her daughter, Mrs. Henry Kirschman near Marion, Mo. Grandmother Gregory as she was lovingly called had made her home with her daughter for a number of years. She was blind the last fifteen years of her life, but cheerful as always was loved by young and old.


Her maiden name was Shull, a sister of Thos. Shull, of Windsor, who was in attendance at the funeral. Mrs. Gregory was a Christian lady and will be greatly missed in the home and community.


She was the widow of the late Dr. [Thomas] Gregory. Burial at the Shull cemetery on the Rosenmiller farm. She leaves a host of relatives and friends to mourn her demise.
