Genealogy/Family History: Whitacre Family Cemetery; Schuyler County, Missouri

Lat: 40° 33' 55"N, Lon: 92° 26' 40"W, approx.
Total records = 10.

The Whitacre Family Cemetery located on the Max Snowbarger Farm in Darby, Schuyler County, Missouri, is so close to the North Central home of my father Max H. Tomey of Lancaster, Missouri, that there is no line. 

The directions I was given are as follows: out of Lancaster, drive towards the TV tower. When you get to the tower, go left and 2.3 miles north. It is on the way to the Darby church. It is on the southeast corner of a field near an area called the Old Darby farm. 

There is an old house nearby that is falling down. It also is located near the Berle and Anna Shaw farm. They were the ones who showed me where it was. I was there around June 18, 1980. Some of the property may have changed ownership since. 

There is one large stone for Isaac and Luisa and eight small headstones and footstones. The small headstones were all knocked over and laying in various areas of the cemetery. Apparently they were knocked over by the cows which graze there.

We collected them all and stacked them on the base of Isaac and Luisa's large stone. 

Isaac Newton Whitacre and Louisa Jane Norman are my  Great-Great Grandparents.
