Historical Marker
    This cemetery is the oldest of three graveyards established in Saint Jo (formerly called Head of Elm). Local tradition claims that area settlers Enoch Willett, his daughter Mary, James Box, Aaron Anderson, and James Harris were killed in Indian raids nearby and buried here in the 1860s. The first recorded burial, however, is that of infant Charlie Wyatt in 1874. Accounts by early residents of this area indicate Head of Elm Cemetery was at one time much larger than the few remaining gravestones suggest. Buried on this hillside are early pioneers of the area and their descendants. (1994)
