Name **** Date of Birth **** Date of Death **** Notes

MASTERSON CEMETERY

  • From Cape Girardeau take Perryville Road to the
    Jaycee's Golf Course. The first road immediately on
    the right is called Cypress Road. Turn on it. and travel
    0.3 miles to a cut in the bluff (hill). Pull to the right
    side of the curb. Climb the hill and there are a few
    remaining stones children have not vandalized. It is a
    prime target every winter as children knock down
    the stones and slide down the embankment on them.
    The following people have been recreated from known
    burials from family, the broken stones at the bottom of
    Cypress Road, and the few remaining markers. There
    are several unmarked graves and the area has been
    used for four wheel all terrain vehicles.

    The Cemetery Protection Association of Southeast
    Missouri has this on the top ten endangered rural
    cemeteries and as funds become available it is
    hoped to fence it.
