From Kansas City, MO, take I35 south to US 69 S (Overland Parkway). From 69 S take the College Blvd West exit. Turn right on College Blvd. In approx. 1 mi. turn south (right) on Quivera Rd. Quivera Rd reduces to a narrow 2-lane road a couple of blocks north of the cemetery. The cemetery is located on the east (left) side of the street between two houses.
This cemetery is located under a tree in a nicely kept grassy area between two homes. A rough-hewn bench sits under the tree between two stones. Some of the stones are quite eroded. Some stones were obviously broken for some time, and then repaired. There are two empty stone settings for larger stones, and one broken child's stone. Seven footstones have been placed in a row at the front of the cemetery, two of which are illegible. Behind and around one of the headstones I found two obvious footstones with no markings. These are all the footstones found.
Johnson County Archives research provided a transcription by Charles and Pamela Mash, and Roy O. Evans Jr., date unknown, found in the Johnson Co. Cemetery Index, Johnson Co. Genealogical Society and Library, 1975. This reading provides the names matching the legible stones in footstone row.
This is a complete transcription by reading and photographing the stones, and is additionally supplemented by other research. Photos available.
