Holy Resurrection Cemetery (also known as "The Berry Cemetery") is an historic cemetery owned by the Berry family since 1875, dedicated for the burial of "Slaves, Paupers and Indians," who for many years were excluded from other burial places.
Through the years, many others have been buried there. Grave sites include those of Mother Charity (a member of the "Underground Railroad" and an associate of Harriet Tubman), and Frank Lewis "Fireball" Yocum, who played basketball with the Kansas City Negro League Team, the Monarchs.
This is also one of the oldest African-American owned cemeteries in Missouri.
