In Independence to reach this cemetery, from the intersection of I-70 & Lee Summit Road, exit I-70 onto Lee Summit Road going north. Turn right onto E Debra St and go 0.2 mi, turn right onto S Milton Dr. and go 0.1 mi. Located between two houses in the residential neighborhood of Milton Estates.
The cemetery is enclosed by a wrought iron fence. There are 43 known graves. Some gravestones have fallen over and are unreadable. Inside the fenced area is a roster posted on an iron poll with a cast iron bell on top. The roster has 39 graves listed from 1833-1957. I have found three additional graves not listed on the roster, the latest being 2006. If I did not find a grave that was posted on the roster, I included it with this report.
On some older maps this cemetery is listed as the Carr Cemetery.
