Old St. James Cemetery
Phelps County, Missouri

Located in some woods behind St. James High School

This cemetery is un-kept.  It has a lot of white pipe crosses marking unknown graves.  Quite a few of the head stones are now unreadable.  I have typed as many as I could read.  The list below the line was copied from various other sources located on the net to just help in the location of your family members.  Denise Seevers and I walked this cemetery on Oct. 15, 2004
