Not available online
TitleRediscovery of the Rice Family Plantation Cemetery in Raytown
AbstractGrave markers have been discovered by a family dog in the yard of the Morgan family in Raytown. The tombstone of Sallie Rice, wife of early Jackson County figure Archibald Rice, was unearthed and is pictured with the article. The Rice family plantation home has been preserved in Raytown as well as slave Sophia White's home referred to as Aunt Sophie's cabin. Current photographs of both the house and the log cabin are included. Those known to be buried within the Coffee Rice Cemetery are listed as well as stones not yet found. The current owners of the land "are respectfully planning a private memorial garden over the location of the cemetery that remains in the corner of their back yard."
