|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
The Old Assumption Cemetery was established in 1872. The cemetery is a German Catholic cemetery. The Old Assumption Cemetery is located on Highway 100 between Gasconade and Morrison, MO, and is on the lefthand side of the road. There is a gate below the Old Assumption Cemetery sign that is along the fence row that you have to open before you can take the grassy path straight back into the fenced in cemetery.
Many years ago cattle had been allowed to roam this cemetery which lead to broken stones, knocked over stones and now buried stones. It is greatly possible that more stones have yet to be recovered from this small cemetery.
My family has cleared this cemetery several times over the years. My Dad has also repaired and repainted the old iron crosses so that they are easier to read.
My family is related to some of the people who are buried at the Old Assumption Cemetery, Gasconade County, MO.
