I am trying to find information on area of Mt. Herman Cemetery and Mt. Herman School both located North of Avery and West of Fristoe, MO in Southern Benton County.
The cemetery is AKA as "Joplin" and or "Kirby" cemetery.
I have visited the cemetery and in the Wednesday November 14, 2007 Vol.123, No.36 of the "Index" newspaper Hermitage, MO there is a picture of the old school building with no details other than it was active in 1927.
The building is still standing as two elderly ladies (former students) were in the picture which was taken recently.
1. How did the name Mt. Herman come about?
2. Was there a church or community there by that name?
3. When was the school first opened and when did it close?
