Pettis County, Missouri


CAMP BRANCH Baptist Church

Prairie Township - Section 21. The church complex sits on the se corner of the intersection of Camp Branch Road & 32nd Street Road.

The saddest, loneliest little cemetery in the county. No fencing. Lots of damage, flat as a griddle...not a tree or bush to break the sun. Several replacement markers partially account for a difference between my readings and Mrs. Carter's.

(Mrs Carter has this as..."McGehee, H. P., son of T. D. & J.; died Sept 19, 1892"...since her reading was 40+ years earlier, the marker would have been sharper...time of day, angle of sunlight or lack of it, all affecting both of us.)
