|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
Walnut Grove Cemetery is located about 1 1/2 miles west of Jasper, Mo. on a large farm. The cemetery is in a grove of trees and is reached by crossing a pasture. This place is very overgrown and is almost lost in the brush and large trees. There are several very large stones that are off of their bases and other flat stones that are buried under leaves and weeds. I saw about two dozen markers that were widely separated from each other. This cemetery could contain over 100 graves and was at one time a major burial site, but now it is a forlorn place. If it is ever cleaned up many early burials could come to light.
In late 2014 the cemetery has been cleaned around where most of the big headstones are located and it is much easier to get around in there.
