The Richmond Pioneer cemetery is the final home of many important graves belonging to founding members of the Mormon Church, including Jacob Whitmer, one of the three witnesses. It is also the home of William Bloody Bill Anderson. Once neglected, the cemetery has been cleaned up and restored.
Mormon Pioneer Cemetery is located at the intersection of Thornton and Crispin
streets in Richmond, Ray County, Missouri.
It was neglected for several years but, was finally cleaned up. There
were several lost sites of the graves. In 1911, Junius f. Wells found the site
of Oliver Cowdery had been buried. Cowdery was a facilitator of the monument to
the Three Witnesses on that site.
