LOFTIS CEMETERY, OZARK COUNTY, MO
LOFTIS CEMETERY, OZARK COUNTY, MO

About 10 miles north of Gainesville, MO.
The cemetery lies, along what used to be the main traveled road from Willhoit to the Brixey area, which passed through what is now the Caney Mountain Wildlife refuge.

The story goes that the cemetery dates from 1887, the year an infant burial was made at this place. A family by the name of SWEARENGIN was traveling through this part of Ozark county in a covered wagon when their baby became sick "of the fever" and died. They buried the child near their camp in what is now the Loftis Cemetery.
