Griggs-Smith-Staples Cemetery

Griggs-Smith-Staples Family Cemetery - Mississippi County 03-17-2016This tiny, well-kept cemetery earned a whoa-back, if not a U-turn when I was driving down Hwy HH in Mississippi county. (Click on it to make it larger.)

Some name confusion

Griggs-Smith-Staples Family Cemetery - Mississippi County 03-17-2016There’s an inlay into the steps leading up to the graveyard that says “Smith-Griggs,” but this marker calls it the Griggs, Smith and Staples Family Cemetery. It was established in 1866.

I couldn’t find much information on it. FindAGrave lists 30 interments.
