Long Description:
This cemetery has no sign and is on private property. However, you may park as far as possible to the side of the road to visit it. I would suggest that you park near where the coordinates for this waymark take you on Barry County's Farm Road 2015, since it is a little less busy road than the east-west road. The cemetery is literally just a few yards from the northern boundary of Barry County. The east west road is labeled as a Lawrence County Road 2240.

There are only two burials here, with one large headstone for husband and wife, Thomas H. and Virginia (Bolinger) Samuel. The cemetery is not (at the time of this posting) listed in FindAGrave, but it is listed on the MoGenWeb Barry County Cemetery Index page, and has its own Cemetery Page; which, I think, has a mistake about the boundary for Lawrence County, which is the east-west road itself, so that the southeast corner cannot be Lawrence County.

The page listing both graves compounds the error by stating that the graves are in the southwest corner, supposedly correcting an earlier description, which was actually correct! The graves are clearly in the southeast corner of this road crossing, rootsweb page description notwithstanding. (My guess is that someone was turned 90 degrees in their thinking, which would account for both mistakes.)
