|Debbi||Elihu Emery/Emory burial|
As far as I know there are not any records for Tucker Cemetery other than the gravestones, an inventory done in the 1970's by Bobbie Hatton Richardson and a Campbell MO area burial database I created (not yet completed).
Sometime in the very late 1980's or early 1990's it was discovered by someone who belonged to the Beechwell General Baptist Church that Tucker Cemetery was actually their church cemetery. Until then no one really knows who had any records, if any, nor who cared for the cemetery in the early years or if any records of any kind existed. From what I recall any records may have been with a caretaker but were not passed on to the next caretaker or was destroyed by the family upon the caretaker's death. Burials in the old section are now only allowed if the family can provide evidence that a grave is still available for use otherwise the burial must be made in the new section which I understand records may be available but am not sure what these records include (lot owners only and/or data of deceased).
I did notice that there are at least one other burial in Tucker Cemetery with the Emery surname and that's for Sarah Elizabeth (nee Harris) Emery one of two wives of Jonathan Emery. Sarah supposedly was born about 1881 and died in 1899. Don't know if Jonathan was Elihu's son but if he was and a gravestone can be found for Sarah then perhaps she was buried on the same lot as Elihu. You might be able to get permission to set a gravestone next to hers from the church's cemetery board (if one exists) and then prod the area for possible gravestones which have sunk underground level. I know back in the 1990's that when the cemetery was first cleaned up (after many years of neglect) that someone prodded the ground and found some gravestones and brought them up to reset. I found one that was of my husband's family and had been wondering what happened to that individual for over 15 years then.
If by chance you learn something regarding the records, could you please let me know. Thanks and good luck.
