History

DeWeese Cemetery was formally established in 1880 when Clara Ellen DeWeese gave the land to the county for a public burying ground.  Shortly after that, she married S.L. Wallace on March 17, 1881.

The DeWeese family settled in and around Pleasant Gap. Jesse and Malvina Berhtol DeWeese came from Kentucky and settled in Bates County in the 1840’s.  Their first child was Rosannah, born November 23, 1844 in Bates County who would marry Joseph Wix.
