Wilhite Cemtery
Sullivan County, MO

This historic cemetery is located in the pictureqsue rolling hill country of Northern Missouri, about six miles west of Milan and about six miles east of Osgood, and is located in Section 11 of Township 62 North and Range 21 West. Many early settlers of Sullivan County are interred here, and if you are able to visit, you will experience strange but wonderful impressions as you walk quietly among them and feel their presence. For those that aren’t able to make the trip, we hope this compilation will help you find more of your Missouri roots. We’ve done our best to “decipher” some stones ravaged by time and weather. For the great work of the caretakers, sincere “Thanks.”
