Bio and Links
I am a school nurse, therefore have the summers off to devote to genealogy, historical preservation and cemetery projects. My main cemetery focus is "Leeds" Municipal Farms of Kansas City , Missouri. Established in 1911-1965. Long forgotten as a potter's field. The graves are unmarked , but many of the old metal markers have been found buried in the ground. It is in 2 sections. Section #1 is located between Raytown road and Ozark Rd. on Eastern st. between the National guard Armory and the Police helicopter pad. Approx the 4900 blook. On the East side of I-435. Burials from 1911-dec 1934. We have compiled a partial list of names buried at this site of approx. 3000 burials, at present have up to 1,110 names. Still adding.
The 2nd section on the west side of I-435 is on the east and west sides of the Police shooting range. At 6900 Coal mine Rd. take "Winchester" off of Raytown Rd. Blacks are buried on the west side and whites are buried on the east. The graves markers are at ground level, made by the inmates that filled a 3lbs. food can ,filled with concrete and numbered.Burials are from Dec 1934 - 1965. For info or to visit the burial sites please contact, Gloria Lundy ( self appointed Sexton) at 816 674 5107.
We have a book of the burial name for this cemetery which numbers close to 3,500.
Kansas City is presently going through the process of preservation, putting up signs and a Memorial. June 2009

Leeds, John DeFevers Goodman
Gloria,

I appreciate so much the work you are doing.

I find you have posted a Leeds Cemetery sign on the above findagrave site of my uncle. Does this mean you have located his grave at Leeds or that you found my memorial on findagrave?

Thanks,

Linda Goodman Kercheval

Hi again

If you visit the site,
http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=54129220

The photo you apparently added is the same photo as for the cemetery.

Was that your intention?

If you have a different photo, I would love to see it.

Bravo for your work on the Leeds cemetery. It is quite a challenge!

Thanks

Don

Hello

I received a note from Find A Grave that you uploaded a photo to his memorial, but I did not see any photo?

wondering about 1957 burials
I have been reading about Leeds cemetery from the Judge Hargrave collection, and noticed that though section one closed in 1934, there are a number of infant burials listed there in 1957. What was happening at the time that caused this; is there any explanation as to why this might be? All the recorded burials are infants and all in 1957, long after sec 1 closed. It has me curious as to circumstances that would give rise to this?

RE: Leeds Cemetery
Gloria,
Just found your note about Leeds Cemetery. To add a link to the MO Death Certificate, first copy the web address of the death certificate. Then when you are editing the bio type:
Click between the two apostrophes and paste your web address, then between the >< type in what you would like to see written such as Missouri Death Certificate. Hope this helps.
