Graham Cemetery

Near Clubb, Wayne County, MO

 

Note by Jordan Shearer: Graham Cemetery is located near Clubb, Missouri, on Wayne County road number 34, near Bear Creek. It is on farmland that was owned in the past by the Grahams. The cemetery is located in the back of a grown-up pasture where cows used to roam, and is enclosed by a fence, and is up against a forest. It is not easily seen from the road, but there is a sign that says "Graham", but it is overgrown with weeds and such. The bulk of people buried there are "DeSpain's", a family which has been around the Wayne County area for a long time, and some DeSpains still live there, some using the name "Spain". They were very prominent around the Saco area, as the founded the small community (John B. and John D. Spain founded the town around 1840, and it was named "Saco" by Zena A Lewallen later). There are also some Hovis's buried there, as well as Holmes ancestor John Holmes and his wife Elizabeth Dennis (Holmes). It is very small, but contains quite a bit of graves. It is down the road from a church, and I believe that it was called "Whitener Graham Church" or something similar.
