|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
Mostly known as Ballenger Cemetery, although some locals have called it the Skinner Cemetery. The sign at the cemetery entrance shows Ballanger Cemetary. Ballanger most likely an incorrect spelling as there are no burials under Ballanger there but there are for Ballenger. Cemetary may be another incorrect spelling or possibly an alternative, older spelling.
Family names found on headstones there are Ballenger, Callaway, Dohring, Hale, Jennings, Meyer, Sagaser, Schwenk, Skinner, Smith, Smoot, and Wilkin. There are several other families who either have obituaries listing burial here or have memorials posted here, but could not find headstones for them.
The cemetery is northwest of Bevier, Mo. on the south side of Hemlock Rd. which is south of Horizon St. and west of Camp Branch Creek. Not currently visibly from Hemlock Rd. but part of it used to be a couple of years ago until the undergrowth grew thicker over those couple of years. Might be partially visible from the road again with some trimming and mowing.
Latest burial from the date on the headstone was Callaway from 2001.
