New Hope Cemetery – Long Lane, Dallas County, Missouri

scan0373aThis is the cemetery in Missouri where a lot of my mother’s family is buried.  Her Shank grandparents and great grandparents, along with the Massie family, arrived in Missouri in 1870 and settled near Long Lane in Dallas County.  As you can see from the sign over the gate, the cemetery was established in 1873.  It was about the same time that the Primitive Baptist Church was established in the same location (the church was behind me and as I took this photo).  This view looks out toward the middle of the cemetery, the older part being to the left and the newer part being on the right.  Below is the marker for my grandfather and his second wife, my step-grandmother.  Note that he died on his birthday!
