Total records = 68.
From Kansas City, take I35 South 5 miles to 18th Street Expressway exit. Turn left (east) on 18th St. Expressway, Roe Blvd. Continue south on Roe Blvd to 95th Street. Turn left (east) on 95th Street and continue to Mission Road.
This old cemetery is located just east of the intersection of 95th Street and Mission Road between Ranch Mart shopping center and the U.S. Post Office.
"The cemetery is enclosed by an iron fence and because the shopping area has been graded all around it, stands higher than street level. It is nicely maintained, and a very familiar landmark. It is something of a curiosity because of its location, right in the middle of all the commerce and activity in this busy suburban area." – Margaret Bates
A Leawood Lions Project plaque is affixed to the iron fence at the entranceway.
I have created this transcription by walking the cemetery, photographing, and transcribing the stones in July of 2005. I compared my work with a previous work done by Margaret Bates. Photos available upon request.
