Back to Linn Co Cemeteries
Located in Benton Township, SE 1/4, Sec. 28, T-60, R-20. Start in Purdin, Missouri, at the intersection of Mo. State Highway 5 and Mo. State Route C. Go east on C about 2 1/2 miles to intersection with Mo. State Route KK. Go north on KK about 2 3/4 miles to a gravel road going west. Go west about 1 1/4 miles, or nearly to the top of the hill just past the first gravel road north. At the present time (1989) there is an old house and barn on the south side of the road. The cemetery is directly south of the house and barn about 1/4 mile. Go down the hill, across the stream bed and up the next hill to a grove of trees.
This cemetery is not kept up, or fenced. Most of the stones are down, and it is grown up in weeds.

|A footstone reads M.F. Mc C.|
|2 basestones only.|
|It Appears there are some burials here without tombstones. Perhaps, some of the headstones have been moved to another cemetery, or destroyed in some manner. This is all we could find.|
