Where is Smith Burying Ground?
After some investigation, Smith Burying Ground might be as shown on the Randolph County, Missouri, cadastral tax maps (http://randolph.villagis.net/) at 39.3760386 by -92.597293 (#1) or at 39.3760386 by -92.597293 (#1) . Over the years, others have described the place thus: "Smith Burying Ground is on a farm now owned by Dave Eubanks - 8 miles S.W. of Huntsville and 1 mile S. of Hwy. #3 at Mt. Airy MO." And "Smith Burying Ground is on a family farm on Route BB owned by Clifford Key in Mount Airy, Randolph County, Missouri." Neither owner's name is listed in the current online real estate tax database (2016) of the Randolph County assessor.
If you know the exact location of this cemetery (latitude/longitude), please e-mail Tay Vaughan at tay[at]vaughan.org! Thanks!

From Nancy Meadows (photographs of Smith Burying Ground below) on Mar 18, 2011: "The cemetery is in real bad shape. Pictures were taken of all stones found, but we could very well have not found some. Livestock have destroyed many stones outside the two fenced plots, and there are many apparently unmarked graves."
