About Prairieville Township and Cemetery
The town of Prairieville began in the 1800's. In 1838, the Methodist Church was organized in Prairieville, and in 1847, the first Episcopal Church west of the Mississippi was established north of the town and was later named St. John's Church. Prairieville became Eolia. St. John's church is a historic landmark. Prairieville Methodist Cemetery is near but separate from Eiolia Cemetery and is located where the Methodist Church previously stood. Prairieville Cemetery is along H and the lane to St. John's Church.

William came to Missouri in 1867, lived in St. Charles County for two years, then settled in Monroe Township. A conscientious citizen. Member of the Methodist church for 30 years.
