DeKalb Cemetery is approximately two miles north of Stewartsville, Missouri on Sharp Road. It is a small cemetery, maybe half an acre, and there is no sign. Of the death certificates found for the people interred here, the cemetery is also referred to as McKee cemetery, and Black cemetery. Many Missouri death certificates that indicate "DeKalb cemetery" as the place of interment actually refer to West Lawn cemetery, which is in the city of DeKalb and located in Buchanan County.
