The cemetery is located 6 miles southeast of Strafford in Greene County, MO. The cemetery was originally on the Samuel Martin homestead. Samuel’s son Samuel Gilbert Martin inherited the farm where he raised his family. The best I can determine the next owner was Jonathan Pickel then Thomas Sayers. I don’t know who the current owner is.

Samuel Martin, the first Presiding Justice of Greene County upon it’s formation in 1833, settled on the land shortly after arriving in the Ozark’s in 1829.
