Anderson Cemetery listings

According to Recordings of Walker Township Cemeteries published by the Moniteau County Historical Society, the Anderson Cemetery is located: just south of Proctor Park in the south part of California, Mo. in Section 33 or 34 of Township 45, Range 15.


Only two stones were discernable when Marion Shores visited the cemetery in 1971. Two or three additional rough stones were noted at the north end. These stones may have marked the graves of some children.


Alan Sparks and James Albin visited this cemetery January 5, 2008.  The old wrought iron fence is still standing with several trees inside the fenced area.  The only stones found appeared to be 3 rough stones (as mentioned above) on the north end.  Mr. Haile told us the trees were going to be cut off to make way for relocation of power lines associated with a new 4 lane Hwy 50 being built within 200 yards of this cemetery.




Directions to cemetery: It is located on private property just south of Proctor Park at the southern edge of California. It is near the power lines along the north side of the 4-lane Hwy 50 east of its intersection with Hwy 87. Please always ask permission to visit cemeteries on private property. 

This is a cemetery "you have to know where it is" to find it or be shown its location.
