Whitworth Cemetery, aka Harwell Cemetery
Butler County, Missouri

From Betty Hanks Butler County, MO Cemetery Book: On the USGS map this is marked as HARWELL Cemetery, but locally is more commonly known as the WHITWORTH cemetery. Elias Whitworth used to cross this hill on his way to town, and always said this is where he wanted to be buried. While Elias was yet living, a neighbor boy died and was actually the first to be buried here, but Mr. Whitworth was the second. There are many more graves that no longer have legible markers. Most of the cemetery is overgrown, except for where the FREER family are buried, and their descendants keep that portion cleared.
