Collier Cemetery


The Collier Cemetery lies N of Weston, Missouri near H Highway. Simeon Collier, who died in 1885, left his farm to his two daughters. One acre in the NW corner, extending to the public road, was set aside for a cemetery. He also left money to build a rock wall around a half acre. His son, T. S. (Dud), was appointed to have the wall built. Mr. Priar of Camden Point built the wall four feet at the base and four feet high. The fence was built with hand laid stones and it has been described as beautiful. The farm is now owned by Marvin Vice and it is about 7 miles NW of Weston.
