History

The cemetery is a small family cemetery located on land originally owned by Jean Baptiste (John B.) Chorette.  Several family members are buried there.

John B. Chorette, a Frenchman, who built a mill about two miles up the Marais des Cygnes river from Harmony Mission in 1833 or 34.  He operated the mill for several years and sold it to another pioneer, John M. Parks and while he owned it, it was destroyed sometime during the Civil War.
