Out and About

Over the weekend, my husband and I were out for a country drive. We like to explore 'scenic' routes leading generally toward our destination. I am continually on the lookout for cemeteries, of course! This time, my husband spotted one as I was looking the other way. Believe it, or not, he voluntarily turned around so I could wander and photo.
This cemetery has no identification, but is delightful! It made me think of the small cemeteries along the roads in Virginia. You just come upon them as you're driving along.

After a little bit of looking around on the internet, I discovered the name of the cemetery is Shull/Culp/Davidson. It is in Athens Township in Gentry County, Missouri, near Albany. I was able to take pictures of 17 headstones. From a couple of online databases (Cemetery Transcriptions for Worth & Gentry Co's MO) (Shull/Culp/Davidson Cemetery, Athens Township, Gentry Co., MO), it appears there are others buried there.

I will be posting all of the pictures I took on my Facebook site.

If you have family roots in Gentry County, Missouri, the GenWeb page is a great place to start.

Happy Hunting!

  1. That seems like so much fun! I know what you mean about the roadside cemeteries.... I used to live in Virginia/West Virginia. Congratulations on yet another find!
