T35N R13W Sec 13
From Fort Leonard Wood MO turn right onto I-44 Spur S, then a U-Turn onto I-44 Spur N, turn left onto ramp. Merge onto I-44 W. Take the Mo-P/MO-7 exit, then exit Number 150 toward Richland/Laquey. Turn Left onto MO P/MO �7. Cemetery will be on your left just before getting to Laquey Schools, which is less than a half mile from the turn.
This cemetery is in great condition and is maintained by the Laquey School System. I'm not sure if it is still active or not, but know that the most recent burial was in 1999.
There are about 25 additional fieldstones, it is unknown who they are. There are a few other stones, but they appear to be footstones. If you know of someone buried in this cemetery that is possibly marked by one of these fieldstones please email me.
I walked and read this cemetery on May 15, 2004. I have pictures of the tombstones, and willing to email copies if requested.- Ken Carlson
