Hemry/Payne Cemetery, Daviess County, Missouri, Photos and Transcription

Compiled by Steven Reid, Sept 2004

In 1972, the Gallatin chapter of the DAR transcribed this cemetery and found two HEMRY tombstones I did not find in my September 2004 visit as follows:  "Infant son of T. (Thomas) E. and S. (Sarah Payne) A. F. HEMRY b. and d. 11-29-1857" and "Elizabeth (H.) dau. of T.E. and S.A.F. HEMRY d. 3-28-1863 age 1yr 5d".  The cemetery was quite overgrown and it is entirely possible I missed these two stones as no stone is left standing in the cemetery.
