A List of Platte Countians Buried There

Names and dates of Platte Countians buried in Barry Cemetery not recorded in Volume 1 of Platte County Cemetery Records. See pages 13, 14, 15 and 16.

According to Mrs. Marguerite Ford Mosby, the Barry Cemetery was founded in 1840, when a three acre plot was purchased from the Chevis and Dooley land near the Platte-Clay County line. Many stones show dates prior to the founding date. In this plot are 800 to 1000 graves, including Indians, slaves and Pioneers. The first Platte Countian buried there was Tucker Williams, who was killed in 1849 while building a cabin on the homestead he had occupied since 1843. He was a great grandfather of Mrs. Mosby, who has surveyed this cemetery twice.
