From Kansas City, MO, take I35 South 5 miles to the 18th Street Expressway - Roe Blvd exit. Turn left onto Roe Blvd and continue to 75th St. Turn left on W 75th St and continue to Mission Rd. Turn right on Mission Rd. Turn left on 83rd St (Corinth School). Cemetery is located on south side of street directly behind Corinth Elementary School.

This cemetery was originally for the Cumberland Presbyterian Church. The original memorial marker erected in 1871 by the Cumberland Presbyterian Church stands in the center of the cemetery with a series of more recent memorials to those who founded and cared for the cemetery, such as the Wood, and Porter families.

The Cross family cemetery, once located at Johnson Dr and Lamar St, in Mission, KS, was removed to this cemetery to make way for development.

This cemetery is mowed and well tended. Some of the old stones are worn and broken, and several of the stones are hidden in their plantings.

Margaret Bates transcribed this cemetery in Sep 2000 and with her permission I updated and submitted this transcription by reading and photographing all of the stones in 2005. I have completed the work on Mar 03, 2006. Photos available upon request.
