This is the first time I've replied to anyone, so I hope I'm doing it
right. I live in Ballwin, MO, which is right next to Valley Park,
both of which are in the greater St. Louis area. I looked
up "Missionary Baptist" in the phone book and there is a "Missionary
Baptist Greater Calvary" church and cemetery in the northeast part of
the St. Louis area (Valley Park is in the southeast part). It's
obviously not the one you're looking for, but most of the people who
live in that area are African-American so perhaps someone at the
church would know something about the cemetery you are looking for or
could give you a better lead. Their phone number is 314-385-3376.
