New Site Church 1876-1916


The New Site Church 1916
New Site Cemetery - AKA WALNUT GROVE

Barry County, Missouri

Capps Creek Township S11, T25N, R28W

The New Site Church is located at the intersection of 1060 and 2020 in T25N R28W S2. The cemetery is a little over a mile southwest of the church in S11. The New Site Church was built in its current location on the Banks farm in 1916. Prior to that time and going back to its founding about 1848, it had several locations. According to a church history, from about 1872 to 1878, it met in the Walnut Grove School, which was located at the corner where the cemetery lane turns off from FR 1050. It is assumed that the cemetery was started in that time period, which accounts for its location away from the current church. History submitted by: Bob Banks

Directions: From the junction of highways 60 & 37 in Monett, go approximately 2.5 miles west on highway 60, then 1.4 miles south on FR 1050.

Darla Marbut and Donna Cooper canvassed this cemetery and transcribed all the stones that were readable in 2003.
