I understand that the Roark - Breeding - Dilthey - Schaub Cemetery is one of the oldest cemeteries in Franklin County, Missouri, located one mile west of Berger, high on a bluff overlooking the Missouri river on the Norbert Horstmann farm.

My ancestor John Martin McManness married Julia Ann Roark. There is a strong probability that they may be buried in the cemetery. I have been unable to locate a complete listing.

Can anyone provide more information about the cemetery or the McManness or Roark families that lived at Berger?

I'm fairly certain that Mr. Horstmann, who owns the property, is a descendant of those buried there. His wife has done considerable research on the family. I have a list of burials from Maynard Dilthey, who passed away about six months ago. It is a list of the marked graves as well as the unmarked graves that were recalled by his mother. About 36 graves total. There are no McManness graves listed, but I would be happy to mail you these lists if you send me your mailing address.

I am a Roark descended from the Roark's in the College Hill area. I'm interested in knowing where this Roark Cemetery is and/or if there are Roark's on your grave list? Appreciate any help thanks Eva Roark Wood

The cemetery is located on private property very near the Franklin and Gasconade County line. It is pretty much accessible by foot only as I remember it. There are several Roarks buried there. If you send me your mailing address, I would be happy to send you a list of the known burials.

I am a Colter descendant, but also descended from many Franklin and Gasconade County people. I am interested in McManness and Charles Phillips (I think his name was Charales) info. Did a Phillips girl marry a McManness? Do you have the McManness/McMannes line info? Are they from Tennessee? I would very much like to correspond with you. Thanks in advance. Shirley. St. Louis.

This is interesting. McManness or McMannes does sound familiar. I will have to look it up. Please correspond with me at eva1960@aol.com it's quicker for me. ALSO, your Colter name is very interesting. My Roark cousin Peggy Coulter (Colter) Bryant of Jefferson City is the ggg gr daughter of John Colter. Does this tie in anywhere? If so, let me know and I would be glad to put you in touch with her... thanks Eva Roark Wood

Shirley,

Thanks for writing.

Yes, David Jesse McManness married Mary Lounetti Phillips daughter of William Marion Phillips & Catherine Mildred Adamson. William was the son of Jesse & Jane Phillips. I have information regarding my McManness family but none from Tennessee. Maybe I will learn something new. I would be happy to correspond with you. Please click on my user name for my e-mail address and contact me privately.

Thanks again,

Mike
