"The unknown cemetery in Section 16, 63 N, Clay township, Clark Co., MO, contains the remains of a number of the BROWN family. Many years ago I discovered this small graveyard and found it bulldozed aside by the local farmer in order to gain more crop land. Yet still, I managed to scavenge enough broken bits of tombstone to piece together one that read "Ann, consort of Henry Brown". She was a Northcraft. The Browns were of my family, having come to Clark County from Shenandoah Co., VA, with the Northcrafts and Smoots in late 1820's - 1830's. Henry and Ann's daughter, Retty ("Rittie") married William Henry Bash -- their daughter, Serina Ann, married Philip S. Barkley in 1884." I thank Cleve Barkley for the above information. The Cemetery is not listed in the book "Cemetery Inscription of Clark County Missouri". The “Clark County Missouri 2005 Plat Book Millennium Edition” indicated the land owner is J. & L Farms. Page 27, and on page 27A the 1878 plat map indicate the present of a cemetery in Section 16.
