Pinelawn Cemetery, Houston, MO, July 1999
Take Route 17 south from I-44, and turn onto
Route 63. Six tenths of a mile later, take a right and you should
find the Pinelawn Cemetery there.
There were lots of Shacklettes in this
cemetary, along with Williams and (I think) Redds. We were there
during some miserable weather, and I had two miserable kids in
tow, so did not spend as much time as I would have liked there. I
hope to go back and do a little more studying and photographing
of the stones.
- Thomas Richard Redd Shacklette's Grave
- Thomas R.R. Shacklette's grave is near the
first entrance you meet. He has a nice spot under a big
- Thomas R.R. Shacklette's Stone
- It says "October 27 1872" and
"July 27, 1948" making him 75 years old when he
died. Somewhere I am sure I have a photo of him as quite
an old man.
- A Shacklette Gravestone
- There were lots of Shacklettes in Pinelawn
Cemetery, including Mary L (July 20, 1850/Mar 19, 1923),
Mabel (Aug 22, 1891/June 20, 1977), Blanch (June 7,
1886/July 10, 1923), and Benjamin L (Sept 2, 1842/Mar 13,
1921) who is, I assume, Thomas's father. I ran out of
film and so could not photograph them all.
