Moniteau County Missouri

Langley Family Cemetery listings


On page 55 of The Recordings of Walker Township Cemeteries published by the Moniteau County Historical Society, it states:

Located on the old Moses Langley homestead in the NE 1/4 of SW 1/4 of Section 20, Range 15, Township 46.


Located near here: 38.729933,-92.591305


In addition to the below listings, there are two stones with no names and two sandstone markers with no names.


James Martin wrote in 1983: The quarter mile walk on the old road was worth the time to this quiet place. The cemetery is well kept with an iron fence around it. It is located on a high spot in site of the spring and old double log house that once had a large central chimney with fireplaces. Several of the old home made markers were done with better than average craftsmanship.


In the February 9, 1928 California Democrat:


Miss Jane Langley Leaves $1,000 In Trust For Maintenance

The will of Miss Jane Langley, which has been filed for probate here, provides that $1,000 shall be held in trust, invested in good securities and the proceeds therefrom used to maintain the fence and monuments and keep generally the Langley cemetery north of town where she and other members of the Langley family are buried. The remainder of her estate is to go to her sister-in-law, Mrs. Maud C. Langley, for her lifetime and then added to the cemetery fund above mentioned and subjected to the same provisions. Mrs. Maud C. Langley is to have charge of the cemetery fund for her lifetime and at her death is to be succeeded by Leon P. Embry. The fund is to be under the supervision of the circuit court of Moniteau County.


R. M. Embry is named as executor of the will, which is dated May 25, 1927, F. E. Eberhardt and Edward Hickam are witnesses.


This cemetery is in site of not one, but 2 log houses. The one on the right is nearest the cemetery, while the one on the left is across a small creek and up a hill from the cemetery. For more detailed pictures click here. This page may be slow to load with several large file size pictures.


James Albin and Alan Sparks visited this cemetery March 31, 2006 when the pictures were taken. The cemetery is in about the same condition as stated above, with 3 or 4 of the markers just outside the wrought iron fence.
