DIRECTIONS: Mayfield Cemetery is located on J highway, just off I-44. About 4-5 miles west on J-highway there is a road with a marker Mayfield Cemetery, the road is maintained by the National Forest Service. The road is graveled and goes back into Mark Twain national forest. The road is in bad condition and the Cemetery is over grown and in decay. The Cemetery is located about 5 miles down the gravel road, up and down hills, the cemetery probably has not been visited in many many years. It is not even marked when you arrive, on a hill.

Below are the recorded inscriptions.
There are quite a few that could not be read due to the mold that has collected over the years, but if someone had time to clean them, would be readable.
