Ray County, MO - Union Cemetery 

 

Union Cemetery sign states that the cemetery was established in 1890.

 

 Union Baptist Church, Ray Co., MO - Across from the Union Baptist Cemetery

The brick church at Union Cemetery is the second church. The first church was much farther back and against Fishing River and it was a wood structure. The parsonage next to the church was a school for many years and one that my husband, Jewell Mills, attended when he was very young. My husband's mother, May (Clevenger) Mills, told me that old Samuel and Pherriba (Frakes) Mills contributed a great deal toward the building of the brick church. The Union Cemetery was opened about 1890 and my husband's parents had control of it for many years, but they then sold it to the Union Cemetery Association. Although it lays on our farm, we do not have any control of it now. The land is owned by the Cemetery or Church Association. [Ref: From the Mills family research files of M. Virginia Mills]
