i walked the entire Mount Horeb cemetery in Camden county missouri today. I found lots of McGuires' but not james or Martha. I did not report that as a problem and left it an open request in case I missed them. we have had a lot of rain lately and and had my two granddaughters with me so i did not want to rule out that I just missed them. Sorry

Durrill Cemetery in Pettis County
I also found this if it helps:

UPDATE: Oct. 5, 2007, from Vesta L. DeRiso
"The Durrill Cemetery has been destroyed. The farmer (not Sam Anderson) who
owns the land plowed it up and tossed the stones. There are 3 stones still in
the woods - and two of them are not on the list - probably because the woods
had already claimed them. One of them is Mary G., wife of M. Reed. The other
is Ruth, wife of Jacob Yankee (which would be significant). She is Ruth
Goodnight Yankee. The Goodnights have kept their cemetery in good order, and
they might want to know that the stone is there."

Durrill Cemetery in Pettis County
Hello,
I notice that you had some requests for this cemetery. I started researching to find a location to photograph the stones, but in the process, I found a message board from back in 2007 that was on Ancestry.com. Here are some of the comments that followed the thread about the cemetery:

Comment #1
The Durrill Cemetery has been destroyed, for anyone who is interested. It was plowed under and turned into a cornfield. The stones were tossed. Very, very disappointing.
Comment #2
The current landowner's father used some of the headstones for a sidewalk years ago and the current landowner wouldn't allow descendants to visit the cemetery. I'm just greatful that someone documented who was there.
It's a disgrace that some people have no better sense of history.
Comment #3
I photographed the 3 stones that remained. I don't know that two of them were recorded before - and they only remain because they're not at all visible (unless you know where to look). The third stone was pretty much washed clean. None of my family stones remained. Yes, it's a disgrace. These were the oldest residents of Pettis County, and they have been very badly treated. It's not just the landowner's fault, though. This cemetery should have been protected.

I just wanted to let you know so that you aren't waiting for the pictures. I'm very sorry....

RE: Sinia Meek Glass
You are very welcome. Have you hooked up with Dave Glass? He had he same photo request, but for a Sinia Meek. Maybe a relation? Just a thought...

I just noticed your father's family was from Des Moines, IA. It's funny, but my family was from Missouri & moved to Des Moines, IA when I was four so I was raised here. It's a small world.
