Holder-Myers Cemetery

ON PRIVATE PROPERTY. Please be sure to obtain owner's permission!

Ancestry.com: Located four miles east of Knoxville, Missouri

1973 Ray County History, p. 230: the map shows the location further west than the Section 24 above would indicate [I think the location in the 1973 History is incorrect]

Big Black Cemetery Binder: located three miles north of Millville, on what is now known as the Lowell Hendrix farm

Based on the directions in the Big Black Binder, the cemetery would be in T53R27S05. Lowell Hendrix owned the land in 1997 and 1976. Alexander Holder, who is buried in this cemetery, owned the land in 1897 and 1877.

Go north on B highway to 184th Street and turn west up a long gravel drive to a private residence owned by a family named Hendrix. It is back in a cow pasture up on a hill and is fenced but overgrown.
