|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
One set of directions:
Ward Cemetery - This cemetery is located in Section 18, Township 59, Range 23 of Cream Ridge Township in Livingston County, Missouri. It is located just eight miles North of Chillicothe on Hwy 65, then East 3/4 mile along Route K, then North one mile, then East 1/2, then South 1/4 mile at end of field.. It is fenced but not maintained.
A second set:
North on 65 out of Chillicothe, go east (right) on Route K. Follow this for about 3/4 mile. Go across the bridge and just past the bridge is road #245 (which is probably a gravel road but could be a blacktop), go north (left). Follow this for one mile, then east (right) for 1/2 mile, then south (right) for 1/4 mile, the cemetery is at the end of a field. She couldn't tell if there was a road to the cemetery or not anymore, or exactly where the cemetery was in relation to the field, back, front, whatever, the directions only say "end of field" but she thought it was on private property
Both are good until you get to "the end of the field." The cemetery is at the south end of the field, and you have to find the path between 2 fields to get back to it, and there is no bridge over the small, but muddy creek, other than some very old 2"x6" boards.
It looks like sometime around 2013 the cemetery was cleaned up. It would be great if it could stay this way!
