Little Shoal Cemetery

Little Shoal Cemetery

Spring, 1998

Little Shoal is a small, historic cemetery near Liberty, Missouri. It is the burial place of many Kansas City and Clay County pioneers, who migrated from Kentucky and Tennessee. In 1997, the county ran out of funds to keep the cemetery mowed, and the grass grew pretty high.

We are organizing a group of people who want to keep the cemetery looking nice and preserve its history. Lots of people have already expressed an interest in helping.

We invite you to join us!

If you're interested in this piece of Clay County and Missouri History, whether you're nearby or far away -- please give us your input and ideas. We'd like to hear from everyone connected to Little Shoal! Send your mailto:sjhobbs@earthlink.net.

Below are the surnames on Little Shoal graves. Maybe you are connected to someone buried there. If you are connected to early Clay County, chances are you may be connected to Little Shoal Cemetery.

If you see a connection, and can pass along the word about our project to your cousins and friends, it would sure be appreciated. It would be great to hear from each family there!

In addition to preserving the cemetery itself, we would like to preserve the histories of the people at Little Shoal. Do you have family stories you would be willing to share? Let us know!

Thanks for supporting the Little Shoal project!
