RE: Vivion Family Cemetery I came accross what may be a great find for you if you have not seen it yet. It's a book called "Down the Avenue of Ninty Years: Reminicenses of Martha Campbell Vivian" published in 1924. It's neat because there are over 20 photosgraphs in it of the Vivian -Campbell family. The original may be in the Warrensburg lib as I found a copy of it in the Higginsville Public lib. Bill
RE: Vivion Family Cemetery Well the cemetery is near an intersection about 100 yards off of 24 and I believe BB which comes up from Corder. I also think there is at least 1 memorial stone that I didn't get photographed. Let me know if you want to go see it. I'm free Friday thru Monday this weekend. Bill
