Directions for Locating Doniphan Cemetary


From Troy, go south on State Highway 7. When Hwy 7 curves to the right, continue straight south on Last Chance Road. Stay on this road. After about four miles, the pavement will end, but the gravel road will continue south. Go another three miles or so. The road will curve to the left (east). After a mile it will curve to the right (south). Another curve to the left after a mile, and then it will curve right, to the south. (At this curve is the Spring Grove School.) At about another one mile, there will be a stop sign at a "T" in the road.

Still staying on the road, which is now call Mineral Point, go straight through the "T". The next major crossroad will be 100th Road. Turn left (east). Stay on this road, which will curve right and climb up into the cemetary.

Please Note: These roads can be treacherous after heavy rains. Doniphan County is notorious for its loess soil, which turns to mud when wet. Use caution when driving. I wouldn't recommend taking a passenger car onto any ungravelled road when the ground is saturated, unless you're prepared to walk out if you get stuck.

The road from the intersection of 100th and Mineral Point is gravelled, but only sparsely. Use your own judgement.
