Cemetery notes and/or description:
located 9 miles S/W of Andale near corner of Maple Grove Rd and Ryal Rd.

The following was taken from the 100 years 1880 - 1980 book of Ost Kansas.
"One of their first challenges presented itself - what to name their new community. Without hesitation, they selected the name "Ast" after the shortest name among them, which belonged to two of the group. The name became "Ost" partly due to a misinterpretation by someone in the U.S. Postal System. Frederick Ast, one of the early postmasters, wrote his capital A much like a capital O, with the loop and flowing line near the top instead of to the side. Someone misread the A for an O and a town's name was changed. Throughout the years, however, the connotation, St Joe was, and has been, the more popular name for the community."
