On Sunday, June 11, 2012 -
My Mother - Mary June Summers Foster,
My Sister - Tanna Terle Foster Wynne Moschgat Klipp,
My Nephew's wife - Cindy Harley Wynne (Lee Wynne) and
a neighbor close to the cemetery and that oversees
the land that the cemetery is on - Robert Page we
were able to locate my descendant -
Mrs. Sydney (Sidney) Nickell Drummond.
The cemetery is located in a grove of trees
(Auberry Grove Cemetery) and at that time found approximately six above-ground headstones.
Some were readable and others were not.

The land now is owned by Jason Spillman previously of Jamesport, Missouri.
In 2014, Frank Hampton and I re-visited the cemetery.
At that time, we tied yellow plastic ribbon around
several trees outlining the general area and we
inserted small metal rods with yellow flags alongside
each stone that was still visible.
We also visited the Old Hill Cemetery in which both
of our relatives are buried.
It had been stated that Fort Hays was near this cemetery. Others possibly buried here but stones were not found due to the overgrowth of brush.

It was not until 1830, however, that the first white man settled in
what is now Daviess County. This territory had formerly been inhabited
by tribes of Sacs, Foxes, Pottawatomies and Musquakies and it was not
until 1834 that the last Indian camp disappeared. Their last camp was
Auberry Grove, north of the present town of Jamesport. It is said that
hunters and trappers had visited this section of the country as early as
1826 but no homes had been built prior to 1830.
