|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
The name on the sign says Ballanger Cemetary but the family name of many of the individuals buried there is Ballenger. Also most people use the spelling cemetery although cemetary was an alternate spelling for that word used by people in the past.
When creating a new cemetery listing, Find A Grave has a requirement to show a city location. Ballenger is actually in rural Macon County, MO. northeast of Callao, Mo., northwest of Bevier, Mo. in Macon County. Also mostly west of Bloomington, Mo. - directly on the south side of Hemlock Rd.
Approximately 50 gravesites located when I walked the cemetery. Grass lane off of gravel road to the location.
Also called by some people Skinner Cemetery, but the sign says Ballanger Cemetery. There are some exceptions, but the majority of the graves are of the Skinner or Ballenger families.
