Sparks Cemetery
Piedmont, Wayne County, Missouri

Logan Twp, Sec 9
Lat: 3711'55"N, Lon: 9037'05"W

Contributed by Valerie Holifield, Sep 12, 2002 [theholifields@sbcglobal.net]. Total records = 84.

Sparks Cemetery is north east of Piedmont, MO. Take Hwy 34, north for about 5 miles and continue till you see the Lebanon Church, which is on the right as you are driving north, then a left hand turn onto a lesser road which leads to the cemetery.

This cemetery appears to be on private property, so I don't think the road has a name. The cemetery seems to be closed.

My husband and I wrote down these inscriptions, about November of 2001 when we visited the cemetery, and I have transcribed from this reading.
