Old Phillips Cemetery, near Drynob,
Located in the Osage Township near Drynob on Ted Bowman farm which is the
old Robert Faires farm and then later the old George R. James
farm. The cemetery is located in Township 34N, Range 14 W, section 20. From Lebanon, take East
32 highway to Evergreen Road (this is a fork in the road, stay left). Its
an old gravel/dirt road that you take until you see an old mailbox and a
long dirt hilly road going up. Follow that up the hill (you might go
slow its bumpy and old) and then you will come to 2 houses up on top.
The cemetery is down the road passed the house and the barns. Take the
road that is gated up to the left. The cemetery is located under a tree
with a fence around it.
This is a very
small cemetery with only 26 marked graves and several unmarked graves.
It is very overgrown with thorn bushes, therefore, it was too
hard to find all the tomb stones we were searching for. Do not
forget to put bug spray on your legs and ankles before going here.
County Historical Society has published a book that reflects names
of all the grave sites in this cemetery.

was not able to find these cemetery marks:
On 3 Sep 2010, my cousins Linda Denton and Laurie Hernandez and my Uncle
Jerry and Aunt Bobbie went to view this cemetery. I had brought
clippers knowing they may be needed, however, we found that clippers were
not enough to get this cemetery in order. It has many new trees coming
up and the yuccas are taking over. We did use the clippers to get
through here and find some of the markers. I really want to plan a day
to go out there and take care of this, however, time is really tight right
now. Here are pictures I took:
This is a picture of a barn you will see before you get to the cemetery:
