Cemetery is back in a pasture on the east side fence, west of Midway, 9 miles west of Unionville MO north of US HWY 136. Old town of Central City existed as County Seat there in the center of Old Dodge County before 1853. Pearson Ridge angles northeast across West Locust Creek from "170th St" to the north of Central City.
Many many children born and died between census years. Graves are probably the only remaining record of their lives.
Harold Myers, Jerry Pearson, Larry and Sharon Easterday fenced, put up gates, and renovated the very down trodden cemetery in 2001. Likely the missing graves were childrens' small stones destroyed by cattle in the 60 years before 2001.
Contributions ranging from materials and $20 to $100 cash from Pearson descendants in Oregon, Utah, Missouri, USA. Every tombstone but one had been knocked over. Unsolved mystery of Robert T. Cooper Civil War stone shipped to Central City c1879. The Cooper grave may have been at West Liberty.
