|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
This Gold Cemetery is located 2 miles east and 1/4 mile south of Bradfield on the Old Wire Road in the north end of Stone County. The land was settled by William C. Gold in 1866. Word handed down through the Gold Family tells us that the first grave in this cemetery was that of a little girl who had died while traveling on a stage coach on the Old Wire Road.
The only record found of the Gold Cemetery is in the Abstract Office in Galena, MO, which shows the land was set aside to William C and Jane Gold, for a cemetery. It is approximately 70' by 120' and lays east to west.
The cemetery was last cleaned up in 1985 by Leaford Gold, Ray Gold, Curtis Jackson and his wife Katherine. It was fenced at that time but in the years after the cattle have pushed through the fence and knocked over headstones. It is badly grown over and needs to be cleaned again.
The headstones were read at that time and recorded. There are many unmarked graves.
