Tombstone Tuesday - Alvy King

This tombstone inscription reads the following: "Alvy King Son of W.F. & Mary King, 19 Nov 1905 - 11 Jun 1907" - Photo of tombstone taken by Ginger R. Smith, May 1, 2006, and is copyright 2010 by Ginger R. Smith.
W. F. King was William Fletcher King, the brother of Dora King who was the mother of my great-grandmother Nova Peters. Poor Alvy was only 2 years old. William F. King married Mary French and they had 12 children. Their first son, Charley King, also died young. He was born 1895 and died 1898. He is buried next to his brother Alvy.

Their tombstones are located in Joliff Cemetery near Rover, Oregon Co., MO. Other tombstones I have photographed in this cemetery include French, House, Huddleston, Joliff, Judd, Kimbrough, King, Nichols, Peters, Richards, and Willard.

This cemetery is approximately 1 mile north of Koshkonong on Highway 63. From Highway 63, take M Highway and go approx. 10 miles on M Highway to 160 Highway. Go approximately 3/4 mile east on highway 160 to first dirt road south. Keep bearing east for approximately 1 1/2 miles. Look for a sign post for the cemetery.
