GILLESPIE CEMETERY, HARRISON COUNTY, MO


Gillespie Cemetery is located in section 28 of Grant Township in Harrison County and is approximately five miles south of Ridgeway.

Tradition says that Mr Gillespie would not let a new road be built through this portion of his property while he was alive, and requested to be buried here to prevent the road being built in the future. A road was later built, but is just east of the burial plots. The road is now blacktop T. The graves were later moved to the Ridgeway Cemetery.
