Bethany Cemetery was established in 1894 and is located just off HWY 54 on Hwy U in Louisiana, MO. This is a small cemetery with great potential. The board of directors has recently decided to increase the cash reward for the cemetery’s missing plat-book from $500 to $2,000. After years of searching and leads that were dead ends, we want the public to know just how priceless this original plat-book is to the future of this cemetery. We hope this reward will bring more attention to our desperate need for the plat-book.
Bethany Cemetery has over 280 people laid to rest and a little over half of the cemetery’s 32 lots are occupied. We have 47 people that are buried here and we do not have any record of where they are laid to rest. These poor souls have no tombstones that we can find. Please help us on our mission to find the plat-book and get them the memorial stones they deserve. This plat-book holds all the information we need to continue to offer plot sales. It contains names, dates and locations to all who are laid to rest at Bethany Cemetery.
Our donations barely cover the cost of lawn maintenance and are always seeking donations – no amount is too big or too small!
