Leigh Keen
Pollard Cemetery, Benton, Missouri
Hello, I just wanted to know if you found anyone who had actual records of burials at Pollard Cemetery, Benton, Scott County, Missouri? A couple of the headstones are extremely hard to read and one had a temporary marker that is beyond readable and we are trying to identify all members of the Keen, Jolliff, and Wyatt families. I added a picture of Nellie Wyatt's headstone, but did not find one for Tom Wyatt, her husband. The inscription says "Wife of Tom Wyatt", but his information is not on the same headstone as hers. Thank you for any help you can give me! Leigh Ann Keen

Melanie--we were up dating our anderson cem book and found three more numbers that need to be deleted; 105703043 (Stephen Griffith)--105392799 (William Griffiths)--105394796 (Lemma F Sewell); these number do not have flowers added to them yet and the other numbers we put in our book. We had to delete some of the ones we did as every time we hit the refresh button (while trying to enter names in the cem we would have two names the same but different numbers. again thanks for all the hard work you do--commerce historical society

RE: Pictures
I tried finding out who takes care of the records there but was unable to find who it is, I'm looking for Arlee Higgins who is buried there or and any other Higgins or Cummins that are buried there. I'd really like to talk with someone who might have records for there.

Hi Melanie
Hello, just wanted you know that his name was Zeno Higgins, it must have been a typo on the cemetary census, he was my great grandad
