Pettis County, Missouri


ALLCORN-DUMSDAY Cemetery

Sedalia Township, Section 14. South on New York Avenue to 40th Street, turn east. Pass Goodwill Chapel Road on the right and then cross a small stream known as Breakfast Brook. A lane will appear on the north side of 40th St. just after passing the branch, take a left into it and go to the end. The cemetery is ne of a shed structure. If you reach Marshall, you've passed it.

Like Rabourn and Abell cemeteries, this cemetery has too many surnames to just be a farm cemetery. I don't know who named this the "Allcorn Cemetery" but thats unlikely to be its name. The oldest burials are Gunnells and then Dumsdays...Harriet Dumsday married W. S. Allcorn, and then the Allcorns appear, but the majority of interments are Dumsdays. Speddens are earlier than the Allcorns also.

This recording appears in Mrs. J. R. Carter's first book of Pettis County cemetery recordings, but its not her recording. Haven't seen this style elsewhere in Mrs. Carter's work (changed here to comply with accepted standards). Likely she gathered it up among things already done before she started her quest to record the county's rural cemeteries, while the other ladies of the DAR worked on Crown Hill. GCW
