BIG NIANGUA ROACH CEMETERY



Big Niangua Cemetery at Roach, MO is located in Camden County, on Route AA, opposite the Big Niangua Church and adjacent to the Roach Post Office.   It is stated that the first two burials here was in the mid 1920's,  a mother and daughter by the name of Long.  There are about 200 graves here, some of which are unmarked, or marked only with a sandstone.  If your family member is buried here, and wish their name to be added, please contact me.

NOTE:  Received information  recently that says "The first burials in the cemetary were  a Mother and daughter by the
name of Swensen. I believe they were killed in 1930 they missed the old bridge that crossed  the river and drowned.    This was prior to the building of the dam.   Whether it was the 1920 or 1930 times, I do not know.
