Located in the old Baxter Springs community, this cemetery is located southeast of Holt, MO., in the SE 1/4, SW 1/4 of Section 5, Township 53, Range 30, Clay County, MO., being southeast of Holt, MO.
It was one time reported that the parents of John Baxter, first sheriff of Clay County, were buried here, but this is an apparent error, for they are buried at Mount Memorial Cemetery in Liberty, MO., unless perhaps the graves were later moved to Liberty.
No stones are standing and no names or dates are there, but in a clump of trees south of the former house, which burned in the late 50's, when occupied by Herbert & Elmo Hubbard and Tevis Gow, a formation of rock surround what might have been a grave site. Various rocks outside this formation probably mark other graves.
Correspondence between Clyde Wilson Gow and Tevis Gow refer to some burials. The land was previously owned by William and Mary Ann Harris, Mrs. Harris having been a Wilson, and sister of their mother, Fannie Wilson Marshall Gow.
3 burials are indicated.
