Most recent directions On private property, please ask permission. From the intersection of Clevenger Road & Raymore, travel north 3/10 miles to a farm gate that opens onto a farm path through crops. Travel straight east on the farm path about 1/4 mile from Raymore Road (just past the old barn). Turn north and travel about 170 yards straight north to the gravesite. The gravestones are surrounded by a stone wall. The gravesite due northeast of the old barn almost to the large grove of trees. This is best viewed in the winter time when the crops are not growing and the ground is frozen.
