Last Name - H

Amber Lavie Harlan


Hidden underneath a teardrop or candlelight shaped gravestone, about 30 yards east of the road leading to the work barn, lies the remains of 33 year old Amber LaVie Harlan. Her tombstone reads, "A Beautiful Bride Sleeps In Lace. The Spirit Of Love With An Angel's Face."

Laura Mae Harmon


Born on the 4th of July, 1905, Laura Mae Harmon evidently knew her Creator well. When she perished in 1992, her children left her praises on her tombstone claiming, "Here Lies A Godly Woman!" and "We'll See You Again Mom!" Laura might have taught her children to pray now I lay me down to sleep. To this, her family triumphantly responds we thank you Lord our Mom you keep.

A. B. Harrison


A ten foot high monument with a dove placed atop serves as a reminder of the tragic death of A. B. Harrison when his home collapsed on him. His wife writes her final letter to him on his gravestone, "Sleep husband dear, and take your rest. ‘Twas hard indeed to part with thee, but Christ's strong arm supported."

Eldo Lewis Hendricks


Buried beside a giant vase commemorating the Bass Family, lies the remains of the 22 year long University President Eldo Hendricks. From 1915 to 1937, Eldo Hendricks ran Central Missouri State University when it was still a teacher's college. Eldo's grave lies next to his wife Viola and CMSU has an entire hall named in his honor.

Major N. B. Holden


Warrensburg stared the Civil War in the face as both sides had large practicing military factions. Major Holden became a casualty of this country-wide crisis as he was assassinated in the middle of the night. His tombstone reads, "Assassinated at his residence, in Warrensburg, at 1 A.M."

Dr. Joe M. Hopping


Dr. Hopping quotes the angels at Christ's tomb when his tombstone asks, "Why Seek Ye The Living Among The Dead? He Is Not Here, But He Is Risen." Hopping's gravestone may be seen about 25 paces west of the Jesus Monument.

George Wilson Houts


Though a Civil War battle was never officially fought in Warrensburg, the town was heavily divided over the conflict. Even prior to the Emancipation Proclamation, George Wilson Houts decided that slavery was an immoral institution and freed his eleven slaves. This not only made him unpopular by many townspeople, but also made the Civil War veteran who served in the 2nd Virginia Infantry disliked by his own family, many of whom were Confederates.

Infant Daughter of Houx


Nestled in the Eastern section of the cemetery just up from the East Gate lies five small white stones belonging to the Houx family. The fourth of the five stones belongs to an infant daughter who has the oldest grave in the cemetery dating back to 1834. More Houx family members are buried together further down Cheatham Drive and others are spread out around the cemetery.
