According to the Recordings of Willow Fork and Moreau Township Cemeteries it states:
The church stood just south of the cemetery. It was built by Abe Williams, who was a carpenter by trade. The church was razed in 1917. At the present time there is no road to the cemetery. Years ago there was a road to the west of the church. The road was lined with bur oak trees and tables were built between the trees. Families coming to church from a distance would bring their dinner and after church would linger to eat and visit.

 

The Williams were of Welch descent and used the custom of "Sheet winding" for burial. A strip of sheeting 28 inches wide and 40 feet long was used to bind or wrap the body. The end was brought up on the head forming a cap. The neckline was adjusted to look like a shirt or dress. Many in the cemetery were buried this way.

 

At the death of Thomas Williams, roads being impassable, he was laid to rest on his farm, thus starting the cemetery. He had entered this land from the United States government. The only way to reach the cemetery at the present time is across the yard of Mrs Fred Koechner and one-half mile through a field. When there is a burial the casket is carried from the Koechner home to the cemetery. Seven of Thomas Williams nine children who came with him to Missouri are resting there.

 

Originally, the inscriptions were read by Dorothy and Francis Ketterlin in 1967.

Alan Sparks re-visited the cemetery in the Spring of 2004 when the pictures were taken..
