Francis Cemetery
Howell County, Missouri

Lat: 36° 43' 48"N, Lon: 91° 40' 44"W
T24N, R7W Sec 24

Contributed by Jean Evans, May 2000, last edited Jun 15, 2006 [dojeev811@hotmail.com]. Total records = 80.

Located from West Plains on Hwy.63, go south to ZZ Hwy. turn left, go to end of paved Road, then proceed approximately 1 mile (or 10 miles from 63 Hwy). Cemetery is on left, just west of the Howell/Oregon County line.

The NW corner of the cemetery is chained off with a monument reading: "In Memory of the Civil War Veterans Laid in this Plot", however, I was told as a child that there are Indians buried in this area. History has shown that many Civil War casualties were buried at Indian burial grounds, so possibly both stories are correct.

This cemetery is owned and maintained by the Francis Cemetery Association.

I compiled this transcription in 1998 from old cemetery records and headstones. Any corrections and/or additions are welcome.
