Description

There are 3 separate cemeteries located next to each other on West Main Street in Richmond, Missouri. In order from east to west, they are Shotwell (in the small grove of trees), then Richmond Cemetery (also known in old records as City Cemetery and Old City Cemetery). It has graves located around the U shaped drive). The newest cemetery is the furthest West: Sunny Slope Cemetery with the figure 8 drive. Sunny Slope and Richmond Cemetery run into each other with no distinct boundaries. There is another cemetery that borders the north-east of Richmond Cemetery called Woodland Cemetery. Woodland is downhill from Richmond and accessed from Wilson Blvd. "Richmond Cemetery." See Ray County History, 1973 for a description. The Richmond City Cemetery was originally a twelve acre apple orchard belonging to William Price Hubbell. Later it was sold to Cornelius Vaughn and his wife Mary, who in turn sold it to a joint stock company for the use of a burial ground. It was purchased for the sum of $537.50, and was to be known as the Richmond City Cemetery. (Record Book 2, page 601).
