Gee Cemetery, Grundy County, MO

(a.k.a. EMBRY Cemetery; a.k.a BRUMMITT Cemetery)

This cemetery is in Jefferson Twp. (S23-T60N-R25W) about 2 miles southwest of the Hickory community. It is on the west side of a gravel road but not easily visible, as recent grading has lowered the road about 8 feet. Located on land patented to William Brummitt in 1839, this cemetery embraces the remains of numerous Gee and Embry descendants. It apparently is no longer maintained as a family cemetery, but kindly neighbors keep it from being overgrown.

Gee Cemetery was originally inventoried in 1963 by Mrs. B. F. Hoover and Mrs. O. L. Livingston, and revisited in 1997 by Bobby J. Wadsworth. Additional information and notations appear here that may or may not appear on the headstones, so please beware of possible errors.
