Livingston County, MO Cemeteries:

This list starts at the NW corner of the county with Jackson Township and moves south to Sampsell.  It continues south until reaching Carroll County and then jumps north to Cream Ridge, continuing this track through all the townships to Grand River Township.  Links are provided, but many of these cemetery transcriptions are part of other sites.  Please use your "BACK" button to return to this page.

My description of where these cemeteries are located is a composite of the information in the book Livingston County History Celebrating 150 Years 1821 -1981 and from the descriptions provided by Marie Dryden as listed on Fred Wood's Livingston County Cemetery pages and the locations of cemeteries platted on the 1930 Livingston County Plat Map.  There may be errors.  If so, please contact me with the correct information and documentation locating the cemetery.

Several sections of the 1930 Plat Map are shown below with a number and the name of the cemetery.  The numbers shown in parentheses below refer to that location on the maps available at the following links.  Note:  the the shape of the townships in Livingston County are not square or rectangular, rather they are bounded by the two large rivers, the Grand and Thompson Rivers, flowing through the county.  Therefore the survey township lines and the county townships do not exactly coincide.
