RE: memorial #74033226 If you arrive on Hwy 59, turn east (left if coming from the north) on Park Road; if on Hwy 169, turn west on Park Rd. The cemetery is NE of town on NE Neosho Road.
The Platts are in Addition 4, Block B, lot 157. From the main entrance follow the road straight past the original cemetery plus additions 1,2, and 3. You will come to sort of an oval section; follow the road to the right along the oval, turn left on the gravel road that cuts through the oval. The graves you are looking for are 9 or 10 lots in on the left, second row from the road. You will see stones for Lowry, Lindsay and Wood next to the road. The Platt lot is west of Lindsay and Wood.
If this is too confusing, go to the Garnett Public Library on 4th Street. They can make you a copy of the cemetery map from The Locater.
Have taken the pictures of the grave markers as promised. Mettie's marker is half way into a lilac bush so it was kind of hard to get a good picture. I looked around the area for her mom, but couldn't find any marker. The graves are further west in the NW section of the cemetery than I had first thought, but ...
Mettie and James (youngest James) are a bit separated from the Osterloth's. Also a number of Blue markers in the same area. Those might be Ina's relatives.
LOVE genealogy so you didn't bore me at all. It makes the memorials much more interesting to have some story for them. I didn't see a Dodge but that doesn't mean she isn't there. How tragic that they were murdered!! Not something that happens a lot in our small town (thankfully) Welcome to Find a Grave - I see you are a very new member.
If you would like to maintain your grandmother's memorials or any of your family members I would be happy to transfer them to you. I make the memorials in hopes that some family member will discover some information that they didn't otherwise have and maybe "adopt" the memorials if they are interested.
There are a lot of unmarked graves in the cemetery.
