Jesse JamesYes, it’s none other than the outlaw Jesse James, who is buried in Mount Olivet Cemetery in Kearney, Missouri.    He was born here in 1847 and upon his death, was originally buried at the family farm (upon instruction from his mother).  However, after his mother’s death, he was re-interred, along with his mother, in the family plot in this cemetery in Kearney.

Mount Olivet is a relatively small cemetery, but they have a very nice map of the cemetery, which shows where Jesse James’ marker is.   I did find some other interesting markers in this cemetery, which I’ll be sharing on this blog.
