If you don't mind, could you send me your direct e -mail address. Mine is email@example.com
I'd like start including you and Linda in all future e-mails regarding this old abandoned cemetery at 125th/Hoch (NW of Burlingame). I've been given an assignment from our Historical Society President to crack this mystery. You and Linda have both provided a lot of good points so far.
|Linda Laird||RE: Six Mile Cemetery|
That would not work for my Moores as they actually lived in Burlingame Township, Osage County. All Federal and State census records show this starting in 1880 through 1910.
They did go to the Baptist Church in Auburn.
Thank you again for trying to clear all this up in my mind.
|Linda Laird||RE: Six Mile Cemetery|
I may have to do a mea-culpa.
Is there a cemetery record book? An original sexton?
My James Moore is not listed. He did say 2 stones were unreadable.
I wonder if Six Mile was just a local/nickname.
Thank you for keeping me straight.
I think I will give it up for now and bow to those
who actually know more than I do.
Thank you again

I'm glad you contacted me regarding this. His clipping and his wife's both came out of the Burlingame newspaper. That old cemetery that I'm calling 6 Mile is exactly six miles northwest of Burlingame (but you're right the paper does say NE). All their census reports show Osage County. If you're sure about this, I'll delete the entries, but I guess I was just thinking that old cemetery at 125/Hoch could be Six Mile. There's no cemetery NE of Auburn that I can find that was ever referenced as six mile.
|Ron||RE: Cassville Cemetery|
Sorry I missed your post. The Cassville Cemetery as officially now known, is located adjacent to the church by that name. So yes, it has most likely been referred to by that name. I would have to check further, but I am pretty sure it was also known as an IOOF cemetery.

|Bill Stephens||RE: Wabaunsee County cemetery|
Chris --- the cemetery is just about impossible to reach. I drove along Hessdale Road and looking to the NE all I saw was a steep hillside that rose 100 feet but could not see beyond. I finally found a secondary road and a house at the top of the road. They allowed me to jump the fence and walk 1000 feet to the location. On google earth it is 38 degrees, 55 minutes and 03.76 seconds N and 96 degrees, 12 minutes, 40.72 seconds west. The elevation is 1276 and Hessdale road is almost 150 feet lower. If you zoom in you will see a clump of two trees and greenery around. that is it. the rock wall does not show. The photo was taken from the SW looking NE. If you can send me your e-mail address I can send you more detailed photos that trace my path and provide a positive ID of the location.
