McElhaney Cemetery Section 7 township 28N Range 22W 2nd Campbell Township
From Springfield, MO. South Campbell [US 160] and Republic Road [SH M], west for 4 miles to SH FF, north/right 1/2 mile to FR 168, west/left for 1/4 mile to just past Pleasant Springs Church. Then south 1/4 mile down farm lane on private property.
This cemetery has chain link fencing, and is somewhat cared for. Some of the stones have toppled over. The obituary for E. L. McElhaney states he deeded the land for this cemetery in the fall of 1889, before he died in Jan. 1890, however, no deed had been found. This cemetery has also been referred to as Pleasant Springs and Rountree cemeteries in obituaries, but the tombstones for these individuals are in the McElhaney Cemetery.
