To get to Ottery Cemetery: Go towards Caledonia, away from Pilot Knob, on Highway 21. Nearing Caledonai, turn left onto Highway 32. Drive for quite a distance (you will pass Banner), and turn left onto Highway A. Travel approximately 3 miles and you will see the Ottery Cemetery sign on the right. Turn down the road and you will see the church on your right. Continue on the very small, no-way-to-turn-around road, going across a creek, until you reach a fork in the road. There are two gates blocking each fork. The cemetery is to the right.

Unfortunately, on my first trip I came to the two gated roads at the fork and did not go any further because I thought it to be private property. It is my understanding I should have parked the car and jumped over the gate, going up the hill and I would have seen something similar to this photo at the left......Going back...hopefully this fall!
Gennie Schnell is buried at Cedar Fork Cemetery next to Cedar Fork Methodist Church, which is no longer an active church. To get to the Cemetery, get off Interstate 55 at the Perryville exit. Travel down the Outer Road (which is west of the I-55), travelling North. Turn left onto T. Travel about one mile when when the road turns left, go straight on N. Go about 5 miles on N until it turns into 818 (Do not turn left onto 852). Go about a mile until you come to 848 where you will see the church on the right.
To our suprise, the church was open. There are two rooms, the sanctuary and a kitchen and eating area.
You enter the cemetery to the right side of the church through this gate. I love the old outhouse.
Gennie's stone is near the tree in the middle of this photo. This photo was taken after entering the gate.
In the middle of this photo you can see her small red stone in relation to its distance from the tree.
Her small red stone from the back, with a view to the back of the church.
The scenery in the area is wonderful and reminds me of Iron County.
The left photo is a looking off as you drive toward the Church.
The right photo is standing at her stone and looking to the right.
