Directions to Dade County Cemeteries

Use your browser to do a search.  Hit Edit, then Find, and then type in the first main word of the cemetery you are looking for.  Unfortunately I am unable to get this site to support a lot of text.  Therefore, you may e-mail me directly for directions to the cemeteries that you need.  I will keep working to solve the problem and hopefully will have all the directions on the site soon.  Thank you for your patience.

List of Cemeteries in Dade County

Dade County Cemetery List with Directions:

The following are names of cemeteries found in various Dade Co. records. Many have been read and the information is available in the Genealogy Room located in the library in Greenfield, MO. Several have been read are available for sale. Many were moved by the Corp of Engineers when the Stockton Lake was developed. Information of them can be found in the Dept. of the Army Final Relocation Report available in the Genealogy Room. Photos from some of the older cemeteries are in the records. There is a Master List of all Cemeteries and all information known about them is recorded. Directions are given as recorded in the past or as corrected as the roads changed through the years. Several are on private property and access may be difficult. Please note that all known names for a cemetery are listed and that there are several cemeteries with the same names in different townships. We have some old maps that show the location of the cemetery and size of the cemetery. If you have any information on cemeteries that have not been read or found please share with us.
