Dr. William Jewell was born in Virginia, son of George Jewell. Moved to Kentucky at age 10, studied medicine, and eventually practiced in Columbia Missouri in 1822. He was a mayor of Columbia Missouri, one of the founders of William Jewell College in Liberty Missouri, along with Robert James, father of Frank and Jesse, a state senator in Missouri from 1830-1834. The cemetery is on what was the land of his father George Jewell's farm, and is now maintained by the Missouri Department of Natural Resources. It is their responsibility to maintain the grave of former Missouri governor Charles Henry Hardin, also buried here, as the cemetery has no perpetual care.
