Cemetery notes and/or description:
Glensted Cemetery Hawcreek Township
Sec 1, Twp 43N, R 18W
Latitude is 38.51559N, Longitude is -92.85545W
Per Darlene Osborne

Glensted Cemetery is located about 6 miles North of Versailles, MO. across from Glensted Church. The church was organized in 1862 and the building was built in 1886. The present church building was erected in 1904. This was a small community and town for years but now there's not much left but this lovely little church and cemetery. Bill and Dorothy Williams transcribed this cemetery along with all the cemeteries in Morgan County years ago. The Gerlt family have spent many long hours maintaining the church and cemetery.

Glensted Church

It stands a triumph of it's time
A time when singing filled the air
And Bess played hymns for all to share
All that stood is gone; alone it sits and waits

The spire atop the little church
Holds the bell so greatly loved
Gained from little hands
That earned each penny for the cost
And counted it so sweet
All that stood is gone; alone it sits and waits.

The boards grow weary old and gray
And pass the time with cemetery play
And count each soul and give it space
All that stood is gone; alone it sits and waits.

The day is near when all are free
From ravages of age and time
Each marker is a memory sign
All that stood is gone; alone it sits and waits.

Come see your past and look around
To see what's left of town and pray
And wait your turn on this Memorial Day.
All that stood is gone; alone it sits and waits.
