Using epodunk to search, it only shows one nearby (it doesn't know everything tho). Big Ridge Cemetery. I searched around for a list and did find this reply to someone else's request of directions: Be sure to read all the responses to this request as the address is corrected some and there is a report of stones removed

There is a Matthews Cemetery (about 2 miles east of Canlou)
and a Knoxall about 4 miles....who are you looking for?
I have completed a list on those and have a book on New Madrid county. There is a Canlou cemetery...I am not familiar with it, however, I can inquire for you.

Thank you for your reply. I am looking for Allen's and Lawrences.
They were in and around Canalou about 1906-1920.

Anne, thank you so much for your information and time and trouble.
Willie Allen and Eva Roach did have two children that died. The boy was stillborn. I have death certificates on both children.
