Loftis Cemetery
Ozark County, Missouri

Contributed by Louise Bias-Hill, Nov 15, 2000 [wezey@webtv.net].
Total records = 132.

Nestled in the heart of the hills of Ozark county lies the Loftis Cemetery, just north and east over the hill from the Willhoit store, and about 10 miles north of Gainesville. The cemetery lies, along what used to be the main traveled road from Willhoit to the Brixey area, which passed through what is now the Caney Mountain Wildlife refuge.

The story goes that the cemetery dates from 1887, the year an infant burial was made at this place. A family by the name of SWEARENGIN was traveling through this part of Ozark county in a covered wagon when their baby became sick "of the fever" and died. They buried the child near their camp in what is now the Loftis Cemetery. About a year later, James Marion and Josephine Summerville LOFTIS' infant daughter, Mina M. Loftis, died and they buried her close by the Swearengin baby. At that time, Logan H. Loftis set this spot aside as a cemetery, which was then named for him.

Several years ago money was taken from the cemetery fund and markers were bought for all graves. All were identified but eight, on which "unknown" markers were placed. There are 147 graves in the cemetery at the present time. Source: Loftis Cemetery Records, From Ozark County Times, By Jean Mellon Loftis, White River Valley Historical Quarterly
