Nodaway Baptist Church Cemetery
Nodaway, Lincoln Township, Section 20 South
Andrew County, Missouri

Directions: From Amazonia take State Route T to Nodaway. Cemetery is on the left side of road, to the north of the abandoned church. Walk over the bridge and stay to the south of the chain-link fence. The path goes up a gradual slope, and then up a 10-foot high, very steep hill. From there the path becomes a gradual incline. The cemetery is on the top of the bluff.

Notes: According to a local resident, the bottom of the bluff was, until the 1940s, a rock quarry, which was closed when the blasters began finding bones from the cemetery.

Credits: These pictures were taken by Marlyn Eshelman, 2005, and Betty Halvorsen, 2006. (c)THE Transcriptions (Taylor, Halvorsen, Eshelman).
