Submitted with Notes*, By: Brenda Richardson Waters

Some information taken from the 1977 Casey County Book. pg. 367

Originally recorded by Mrs. R. C. Weddle, Jr., Mrs. Otis C. Thomas and Mrs. Louie Davis.

Approximately 25 graves marked with field stones. The Cemetery is located on Louie Davis Farm, Highway 70 and right down a little from the Casey County High School and is on the hill to the right as you turn to go down the road to Liberty Lake.


Brown, Harrison F., b. Sep. 5, 1888 d. Feb. 5, 1909, son of J & S Brown*           

Carmicle, Peried, b. 1 May 1890, d. 28 Sept 1890, son of Galen T. and wife, Mary Abbott Carmicle* 

Clements, Acey b. May 15, 1842 d. May 30, 1908        

Clements, Carolina Wilson, b. Mar. 15, 1857 d. Mar. 3, 1920, wife of Acey Clements

Clements, Grant R., b. Sep. 14, 1929 d. Jul. 26, 1930

Clements, Laura Passmore, b. Jan. 28, 1899 d. Apr. 26, 1926, wife of John Clements*

*Parents were listed as Nute Passmore and Sarah Wilson on her death certificate.  It is a delayed certificate, but it says she was born 28 April 1899 and died 26 April 1926 aged 37 years 3 mos and 2 days and buried 27 April 1926.  From the cemetery CD that Sonny Coleman gave me, Laura's stone reads born 16 April 1888 and died 2 April 1926.  The death certificate is more reliable and legal, so I guess it should be used more than the tombstone.
