Laquey, Pulaski County, Missouri

Submitted by Ken Carlson


From Fort Leonard Wood in Pulaski Co., Missouri:

  • Turn Right onto I-44 SPUR S
  • Make a U-Turn onto I-44 SPUR N
  • Turn Left onto ramp
  • Merge onto I-44 W.
  • Take the Mo-P/MO-7 exit – exit Number 150 – toward Richland/Laquey.
  • Turn Left onto MO P/MO –7. Continue to follow MO P.
  • Cemetery should be to your left just before getting to Laquey Schools.


The cemetery is in great condition and is maintained by the Laquey School System. I have pictures of the tombstones, and willing to email copies if requested.

Below are the recorded inscriptions.
There are about 25 additional fieldstones that are unknown who they are. There are a few other stones, but they appear to be footstones.
