Odom Cemetary
Dempsey and Delilah Emmons were my great great grand parents. I found the Odom Cemetary yesterday. I could not tell who all of the graves were but I was able to find the graves of my great grand parents, William and Delitha Sharp and the son William.

RE: Davis-Brandon Cemetery
I bought the Laclede County, Missouri Rural Cemeteries book, Volume III, from the Laclede Historical Society and it has 1-1/2 pages of graves listed in Davis-Brandon from a survey done in the year 2000. It would take too long for me transcribe that many names with birth/death dates and comments. If you contact the society, they would be most willing to sell you a copy (nothing is free there!)

RE: Davis Brandon Cemetery
Sorry, but I don't know the answer to this one. The Brandons were relatives of Lucy Ann (Brandon) Davis, wife of Robert Davis, so that makes sense.

The 1900 Osage, Laclede, MO census lists all of these families on the same page, so they were neighbors -- Lewis, Barlow, Brandon, James. and others, so I suspect this was used as a neighborhood burying ground for many of the families.

RE: Davis-Brandon Cemetery
Yes, Davis-Brandon Cemetery is northeast of downtown Lebanon, Missouri. Address is 25298 Salem Drive. Salem Drive is south of I-44. The cemetery is located north of the house on a farm there. In 2002 it was owned by Robert Davis, probably son or grandson of the Robert Davis buried there. I haven't been to the cemetery but you may need to go to the farm house to ask permission since it is on their land.

Starting at the southwest corner of the cemetery, the rows run south to north, and the Davis graves are on Row 3. I made an error when I told you there were two Davis graves. There are four:

Lucy Ann Davis 1855-1948
Robert A. Davis 1854-1912
Lee Davis (WWI, Military marker) 1887-1972
Infant Davis - son of Roy & Goldia Davis 1915-1915

If you have a GPS in your car you probably can find it easily using that address. Otherwise, here are the directions I found in Rand-McNally's web site:

From I-44E, take Exit 140 (Sign says Stoutland/MO-T/MO-N)

Turn right on MO-N /MO-T 0.3 miles
Jog left on Route 66/MO-N 400 feet
Turn right on MO-N 1.1 miles
Turn right on Grindstone Rd 4.5 miles
Turn right on Salem Dr 0.3 miles
Arrive at your destination 0.4 mile

To get complete directions, you may want to use the online directions finder in the Rand-McNally web site and fill in your beginning address and the destination Salem Drive address. Good luck!

RE: Davis Cemetery
Lynn, I'm not sure of any other names for this cemetery - I don't live in Missouri. I used to have a contact in Laclede County but she passed away several years ago...sorry. Joan

RE: Davis-Rosehill Cemetery
No, they are two different cemeteries.

Davis-Rosehill used to be known only as "Rosehill" and was used in the 1800s and early 1900s. Today, it is "abandoned" and in terrible shape. It is located on what was once Oren and Nora (Thomas) West's farm (Township 36, Range 16, Section 23). There are only 2 known Davis graves listed there but probably are more; these two were Eva and Manvil Davis, born 1868 and 1882, children of James Melvin and Pauline (Light) Davis who later moved to Springfield.

The Davis-Brandon Cemetery is in Township 34N, Range 14W, Section 5 on what was the Robert Davis farm.

RE: Davis Cemetery
I don't believe that it is the same. This cemetery if just the 'Davis' cemetery after the original property owner after the Louisiana Purchase . I own the property next to this farm. I knew it was back there, but didn't see it until I asked my neighbor to take me there. It is fenced off from the surrounding cow pasture, but it is not maintained. It is not accessible to me as I am a leg amputee. I could see nice markers in the tall weeds when I was there. There are many sticker bushes in there. I accessed Missouri death certificates and found certificates that showed interment in the Davis Cemetery. The property owner there told me he had see that there was one section that appeared to be for the slaves that died while working there.
