Covey Cemetery

Ray County, Missouri, USA
Memorials 1 added (100% photographed)


One single stone was found with the possible inscription of 53 Ys. 1 Mo. & 4 Ds. It was first thought it had the initials "JB" on it.

It has been said the tombstone should be a Covey tombstone. There used to be a Covey Cemetery there. One informant said she used to play down by a creek and there was one stone still standing and other stones in the creek bed. The stone had the surname of Covey on it. The theory about this cemetery is that a man lived close by and probably took a lot of the stones from the cemetery, plus the stones that Barbara remembers seeing in the creek bed, which ended up in the cemetery being destroyed. He liked to buy land close to cemeteries and he would take some of the stones.
