THE WEBB FAMILY CEMETERY

SUBMITTED BY: Anna Lou Smith 58 Club Grounds North Florissant, MO 63033

In 1993, my husband and I visited the old Webb Family Cemetery, 2.5 miles north of Holliday, Missouri, in Monroe County. It is located in a field on the south side of County Highway F, one quarter mile east of County Highway A. This is in Township 55, Range 11, Section 22. The cemetery is fenced but completely overgrown.

Burd S. Webb and his wife Mary E. (Polly) Beard Webb are my great great grandparents. We found the tombstone of Mary E. Webb, but none for her husband. As I felt sure that he was buried there also, we poked around in the groundnext to her grave and discovered Burd Webb's stone completely buried. We were unable to uncover it and stand it up against its original base.

Listed below are the stones we found:
