Moniteau County Missouri

Snorgrass Cemetery listings


Located south-southwest of Tipton on Snorgrass Road, just north of Route NN in Section 30, Township 45N, Range 17W.

 

According to the Recordings of Willow Fork and Moreau Township Cemeteries this cemetery is large, well fenced with a large iron gate, by the side of the county road, which was once a highway. Most of the stones were in the back part, but no trees, the ground was covered with tall grass and wild rose bushes, which made walking very hard.

 

The pictures above of the cemetery - the two on the left were taken in August 2006; the two on the right in May 2007.

The three Charles sisters, Mrs Preston Hutchison and Mrs Elmer Welty, of Versailles, Missouri and Mrs Gregory Woods of Fortuna, and her daughter Naomi Woods found 31 stones on October 20, 1967.

 

James Albin updated this cemetery in 2005. Alan Sparks revisited this cemetery and took pictures May 8, 2007.  In May 2007 the cemetery had been mowed, the fence still standing surrounded by crop land. The gate mentioned above was still there, however, did not serve any purpose as fence along the road is no longer there.

 

Directions to cemetery: Take Hwy 50 west from Tipton around first long "S" curve and Snorgrass Road will be the first county gravel road to the left.  Take Snorgrass Road south and the cemetery will be on the left (east) just before the old two-story white house seen in the pictures.

 

Or go south of Tipton on Hwy 5, turn right on Rt NN and the second county gravel road to the right will be Snorgrass Road. Take Snorgrass Rd west and it will turn north, pass the old white house, as shown above, and the cemetery will be on the right (east) side of the road.
